Orthopaedic surgeons specialise in disorders of the muscles and bones. They deal with conditions such as arthritis, trauma and congenital deformities using both surgical and non-surgical means. One of the most common problems that orthopaedic surgeons deal with is joint replacement such as hip, knee or shoulder replacement. Under the broad umbrella of orthopaedic surgery, you will find surgeons who specialise in in different areas of the body - specialists in knee surgery, hip surgery, shoulder surgery, spine surgery, back surgery and hand and foot surgery.
The professional body in the UK which represents orthopaedic surgeons and supervises the training of orthopaedic surgeons is the Royal College of Surgeons. There is also the British Orthopaedic Association.
