What does a Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon do?

Orthopedic surgeons are medical doctors who specialize in evaluating and treating conditions related to the bones, muscles, and other parts of the musculoskeletal system. They conduct assessments, review test results, make a diagnosis, and outline a treatment plan. They perform a variety of surgeries, including knee and hip replacements and operations to repair torn ACL muscles. They also recommend non-surgical treatment options. They provide proactive support by educating patients on strategies for preventing injuries or disease.

Orthopedic surgeons are doctors with an M.D. or D.O. degree who must have a valid license to practice medicine in their state and should be board certified in orthopedic surgery. They should have extensive hands-on experience performing a range of orthopedic surgical procedures. In-depth knowledge of innovative treatment options is helpful.
