Orthopaedics (also called orthopaedic surgery) is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of injuries and diseases of the body's musculoskeletal system. This complex system, which includes bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves, allows a person to move, work, and be active.
