Orthopaedics: Then and Now

ortho_thenandnowWhen I hurt my arm 50 years ago, I was treated by doctors who specialize in orthopaedics.

Orthopaedic doctors treat conditions of the musculoskeletal system — which can range from broken and fractured bones to spinal disorders, and a whole lot in between.

I am grateful for their help, and it’s been fascinating to watch the orthopaedics field evolve through the decades. As you can see, there’s quite a difference!
