Orthopaedic Surgery is the specialty of medicine that diagnoses and treats disorders of the musculoskeletal system and mechanical disorders of the peripheral nervous system. Thus, there is some overlap with the specialties of neurosurgery, plastic surgery, and general surgery. The choice of an orthopaedic surgeon as an expert also hinges upon the specialty of the treating or opposing specialist in litigation, and whether the services of a subspecialist are required.
