Orthopedic Surgeon

Orthopedic surgeons are medical doctors who specialize in bone, muscle, and joint surgery. This includes corrective procedures, such as removing torn cartilage or replacing a joint.

Some orthopedic surgeons specialize in specific areas such as shoulder surgery, hand surgery, or joint replacement.

Orthopedic surgeons are certified by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
