Job Description for Orthopedic Surgeon
Orthopedic surgeons work with the musculoskeletal system, which includes bones, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments. They perform surgery to address trauma, tumors, injuries, infections and other conditions requiring surgical intervention. Specific conditions that orthopedic surgeons may address include arthritis, spine disorders such as scoliosis, dislocations and fractures, and damage to tendons, muscles and ligaments, among others. These professionals may focus on general orthopedic surgery or have a specific specialty such as sports medicine, pediatrics, joint replacement or a particular part of the body (such as the spine, hand, and shoulder and elbows).Read More...
Orthopedic surgeons must examine patients to determine a diagnosis and work with patients to determine a course of treatment, which may include surgery, physical therapy and/or medication. At all steps of the process, they must ensure that patients understand their diagnosis and treatment plan, as well as answer any questions that arise. Orthopedic surgeons generally work in a clinic setting or within a specialty hospital, and they must work effectively with a wide variety of medical colleagues and patients.
Orthopedic surgeons must obtain an undergraduate degree before attending an accredited medical school. Once the individual has graduated from medical school, they complete a five-year residency program; they may subsequently complete a fellowship to specialize in a specific area such as pediatrics or sports medicine.
