You may want to consult an Orthopaedic surgeon if you are having ongoing joint pain, such as hip, knee or shoulder pain or a decrease in function in the affected area. In an acute setting injuries to tendons, ligaments and the bones themselves may merit urgent referral.

Some common conditions that Orthopaedic surgeons treat include hip and knee osteoarthritis and ligamentous injuries. Common procedures performed by Orthopaedic surgeons include ankle fracture fixations, musculoskeletal pain and decreased function.
