As an orthopedic surgeon, he specializes in dealing with the musculoskeletal system, including the joints, bones, tendons, muscles, and ligaments. He performs the needed surgery in order to address tumors, trauma infections, injuries, as well as other conditions that need such surgical intervention. Other issues that he also addresses include spine disorders, arthritis, and others.
While dentists can provide assistance when it comes to general oral health, orthopedic surgeons perform more complex procedures, including surgeries, when needed. These surgeries are important in order to possibly repair, salvage, or even replace joints and bones, reconnecting nerves, and improve overall skeletal health. With the help of an orthopedic surgeon, you can have that healthy smile back.
