What is orthopaedics?
This is an area that deals with conditions of the musculoskeletal system (bones and joints of the limbs and spine). The specialty covers a range of different types of conditions starting with congenital (conditions which children are born with) through to degenerative (conditions relating to the wearing out of joints). The field of orthopaedics includes trauma where bones are broken or injuries are sustained to limbs.
Other conditions that are covered by orthopaedics are metabolic conditions, neurological and inflammatory conditions.
