Orthopaedic surgery or orthopaedics involves the musculoskeletal system – the organ system that gives humans the ability to move using their muscular and skeletal systems. The musculoskeletal system provides form, support, stability, and movement of the body.
Examples are shoulder and elbow surgeries, hand surgery, joint reconstruction, foot and ankle surgeries, surgical sports medicine and orthopaedic trauma. Articular disorders (pertaining to the joints) are the most common in orthopaedics.
Orthopaedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumours, and congenital disorders (birth defects).
