Orthopedic medicine involves treatment of the musculoskeletal system—the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Because this system covers such a large part of the body, orthopedic specialists are trained to deal with many different kinds of problems, from joint pain to tumors to broken bones, using many different types of procedures.
Orthopedic doctors often work with a team of professionals, such as physical therapists and other specialists to develop a treatment plan. At North
Kansas City Hospital, we provide a wide range of services and specialized staff to treat most orthopedic conditions.
