What Is an Orthopedic Surgeon?
Orthopedic Surgery is a unique medical and surgical specialty that focuses on improving an injury, ailment, or condition that affects a person’s ability to walk, work, and/or play. The term 'ortho' comes from the Greek word 'orthos' which means “straight, free from deformity”; 'pedic' comes from the Greek word paedia which means child.
The combination of the two words originally meant "to straighten the crooked child," as much of the early history in this field dealt with improving children’s deformities. Orthopedic surgeons today use both medical and surgical means to improve many ailments, injuries, or deformities that may affect the arms, legs, or spine.
