List of common conditions that an orthopedist may treat:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis: Rheumatoid arthritis is a long-term inflammatory condition that affects more than your joints. The illness can harm a range of body systems in some people, including the skin, eyes, lungs, heart, and blood vessels.
  • Osteoarthritis: The most common type of arthritis, osteoarthritis, affects millions of individuals around the world. When the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of the bones breaks down over time, it causes this condition. Although osteoarthritis can affect any joint, it is most typically seen in the hands, knees, hips, and spine.
  • bone fractures: A fracture, often known as a crack or a break, is a broken bone. A bone can be shattered totally or partially in a variety of ways (crosswise, lengthwise, in multiple pieces).
  • Spondylitis: Inflammation frequently spreads to the joints that connect the vertebrae, the bones that make up the spine. Spondylitis is the medical term for this ailment.
  • soft tissue (muscle, tendon, and ligament) injuries
  • carpal tunnel syndrome: Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful, progressive condition that occurs when the median nerve in the wrist is compressed.
  • overuse and sports injuries, including tendinitis, meniscus tears, and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears
