When to See an Orthopedic Surgeon

While your primary care doctor may treat and diagnose your condition, they may refer you to an orthopedic surgeon for more specialized treatment of certain aspects of your condition.

Orthopedic surgeons can diagnose bone, muscle, joint, tendon, or ligament conditions. They also treat injuries, provide rehabilitation, and advise you on how to prevent more damage.
