Orthopaedic surgeons and traumatologists deal with the musculoskeletal system, i.e. bones, joints, muscles and ligaments. They commonly perform operations for bone fractures, joint replacement, muscle, tendon and ligament repairs and can carry out keyhole (arthroscopic) surgery in joints, and infiltrations (injections of steroid and local anaesthetic).
