All about 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.

What happens in an appointment?
Not sure what to expect in an appointment? Here is a little more information. One of our Orthopaedic surgeons will work to diagnose the condition of the patient. This normally includes conducting a physical examination and possible taking X-rays if there is a need to do so.
Sometimes, we will need to use other methods such as an injection, to help make the diagnosis or treat the condition, additional testing may also be necessary to confirm the diagnosis.
In order to help diagnose a patient’s condition, the surgeon will:
- carry out a physical examination
- ask about the patients symptoms

- review any X-rays conducted before the appointment
The orthopaedist may also order additional diagnostic tests is necessary such as:
