One in three Americans suffers from pain or limitation of motion in the bones, joints, muscles or surrounding structures, and the majority of people who are 75 and older have some form of musculoskeletal disorder, especially arthritis.

Orthopaedic surgeons focus on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders that affect:

  • Bones
  • Joints
  • Tendons
  • Ligaments
  • Muscles

Orthopaedic surgeons treat patients of all ages, and for conditions that may include joint replacement, bone fractures, spinal deformity, and sports injuries.

Northwestern Medicine’s orthopaedic surgeons provide leading musculoskeletal treatment, using state-of-the-art imaging and operating room facilities. Northwestern Medicine’s Orthopaedics program is ranked No. 12 nationally by US News & World Report—the collaborative, comprehensive continuum of care provided helps ensure more accurate diagnoses, a streamlined process for patients, and better outcomes.
