This also includes damage caused due to accidents and injuries. The word “orthopaedic” is derived from the Greek terms“ orthos,” and “paideion”, which means straight and child, respectively. However, orthopaedic physicians treat everyone irrespective of age. Chronic pain, rheumatic diseases and musculoskeletal injuries also fall under orthopaedics. A doctor specialized in orthopaedics is known as an orthopaedic surgeon.
