These types of doctors, also called orthopedists, say one important difference between orthopedic surgery and other branches of medicine is that it usually does not involve life-or-death situations. Instead, the focus of the discipline is generally on improving the lives of patients with pain and mobility issues by addressing the root cause of their distress, whether it is a fracture, sprain, deformity, trauma injury, bone break or joint that needs to be replaced.
