Orthopedics and Traumatology
Last Updated 22-06-2019 12:09:26

It is commonly known as the field related to muscle and skeletal system diseases. This field includes the examination of extremities (arms and legs), spinal column and pelvis areas; to put it differently, all joints, bones, muscles and interrelating tissues (vascular, nerve, spinal cord) from the skull base to the toes. Although it does not primarily study the treatment of vascular, nerve and spinal cord diseases, these tissues are always in the face of the orthopaedic surgeon, thus they are compelled to be knowledgeable about said areas. Orthopaedics and traumatology is maybe the field in medicine that has developed, changed and even expanded the most in the light of the recent technological and scientific advances.
