Orthopedics is a medical specialty practiced by medical doctors who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of problems of the bones, muscles, and joints. Many of them do surgical procedures in these areas. In Brazil this specialty is joined with the area of traumatology, which concerns injuries to the muscular-skeletal system. Some orthopedic specialists may specialize in a specific area such as the hip, the spine, the shoulder, or hand, and some specialize in certain age groups such as children. Before you consult with an orthopedic specialist, it is good to know if he has a certain focus to his practice, and if he is certified by the Sociedade Brasiliera de Ortopedia e Traumatologia, which is the official organization recognized by the Associação Médica Brasiliera.

ProcuraMed does not schedule appointments and does not interfere or intervene in the doctor-patient relationship. It is the responsibility of the patient to contact the doctor, clinic, or hospital of his choice.
