Orthopedic Surgery Physician Jobs

An orthopedic surgeon focuses on surgery involving the musculoskeletal system, which includes bones, joints and ligaments. Orthopedics use both surgical and non-surgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders.

History

The word orthopedics was coined in 1741 when French man Nicholas Andry put together the Greek words for “correct” or “straight” and “child”. Although the name implies a specific focus on children, all stages of life are studied under modern day orthopedics.

Training

Orthopedic surgeons are required to have four years of undergraduate training and four years of medical school, in addition to completing a five-year residency. 

However, once training is complete, the average salary of an orthopedic surgeon is $319,782.

Specialties

Many orthopedic surgeons choose a surgery sub-specialty such as hand surgery, shoulder and elbow surgery, total joint reconstruction, pediatric orthopedics, foot and ankle surgery, spine surgery, musculoskeletal oncology, surgical sports medicine, orthopedic trauma, and orthopedic oncology.

Job Duties

While the life of an orthopedic surgeon varies daily, an orthopedic surgeon’s day typically consists of diagnosing and assessing patients’ injuries, ordering x-rays and blood tests, recommending treatment, casting splints, and recommending rehabilitative exercises.
