Orthopedics is the name of the medical specialty that diagnoses and treats the musculoskeletal system. An orthopedic surgeon thus takes care of the complex system consisting of bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles.

Many medical conditions can make it necessary to undergo orthopedic treatment. The most common of these are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Because there are many different treatments for these disorders, you should know these treatments and they should not be seen as strange or frightening.

Our main recommendation is of course that you consult an orthopedic specialist and discuss your problems with him or her.
