An orthopedic surgeon typically:

 
  • Evaluates a patient’s medical history and any previous tests or records

  • Performs a physical exam

  • Provides exercise, alternative and rehabilitation therapies

  • Orders and interprets laboratory and imaging tests and prescribes medications

  • Diagnoses and treats acute and chronic musculoskeletal diseases and conditions including back pain, arthritis, and sports injuries

  • Performs surgical procedures on your bones, joints, and surrounding tissues and structures, such as knee replacement or anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repair

An orthopedic surgeon may also be known as a bone doctor, orthopedic doctor, joint specialist, or orthopedist. You may also see it spelled differently, as orthopaedic surgeon (orthopaedist).
