Orthopedic surgery is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system.

Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and non-surgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders.

Medicine has changed — in a way that, in too many physician offices — and in a previous office of mine in another part of the country, a patient would come into the room. You had so many patients to see in a given day. If they had knee pain, they got a knee MRI. If they had shoulder pain, they got a shoulder MRI. And you were just treating the problem.

When you have a situation where you can get back to treating the patient, I think you can do a much better job. Different activities mean different things to different people. If you understand what it means to that person, you can do a much better job of knowing what their priority is, and that priority helps dictate your care.

Someone may have no desire if they were injured doing a marathon, to ever run a marathon again. That's important to know when you decide how to treat them and how to structure their recovery.

Another person has an injury, their main goal is to get back to work as quickly as possible, even if it means they're not going to participate in the sport they love. If you don't understand the framework of how a person's injury or problem impacts their life, you can't tailor -treatment to make them happy.
