The Greek word 'ortho' means straight and 'pedics' comes from the Greek 'pais' meaning children. For many centuries, orthopedists have been involved in the treatment of crippled children.

Othopedics is the branch of medicine that deals with the prevention and correction of injuries or disorders of the skeletal system and associated muscles, joints, and ligaments, often by surgery.

Orthopedic doctors are often surgeons, specializing in care for osteoporosis, bone health, broken bones, joint replacement, hip replacement, knee replacement. They are sometimes referred to as the 'carpenters' of surgery.

Othopaedics is the medical specialty concerned with correction of deformities or functional impairments of the skeletal system, especially the extremities and the spine, and associated structures, as muscles and ligaments.
