What is An Orthopedic Doctor?

An orthopedic doctor treats problems with the muscle/skeletal system within the body like broken bones, joint issues, and degenerative conditions of the spine and bones. An orthopedic doctor can also treat sports injuries, infections, bone tumors, and congenital conditions as well. Some orthopedic doctors specialize in particular treatments like treating just sports injuries or treating broken bones only, or just arthritis.
