We all know someone that has been affected by bone, muscle or joint pain, and that someone might even be ourselves! Whether its arthritis, a sprained ankle or knee pain, we have all searched the internet for the magical treatment that is meant to miraculously help us. But the truth is, we need to be visiting real specialists for these kinds of injuries and conditions. Luckily, we have private orthopaedic surgeons in Sheffield that can help treat us.
What is Orthopaedics?
Orthopaedics is a branch of medicine that focuses on the care of the musculoskeletal system. This system is made up of muscles, bones and joints, as well as ligaments, and tendons. The study of orthopaedics is truly fascinating and it offers doctors the opportunity to treat patients with conditions that are affecting the muscles and bones, allowing patients to live fuller and more mobile lives.
A person who specialises in orthopaedics is known as an orthopaedist or orthopaedic surgeon. On average an Orthopaedic surgeon does a 5-year degree in medicine (recognised by the General Medical Council), a 2-year foundation programme of general training, 2 years of core surgical training in a hospital and up to 6 years of specialist training. These surgeons are devoted to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and muscles. Some orthopaedists are generalists, while others specialise in certain areas of the body, such as:
