WHAT DOES TRAUMATOLOGY ENCOMPASS?
Traumatology encompasses everything related to the musculoskeletal system. Therefore, specialists in this field evaluate, diagnose, treat, and follow up on injuries, diseases, disorders, and degenerative or accidental conditions that may occur in the following areas of the body:
WHAT CONDITIONS DOES AN ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON TREAT?
Orthopedic surgeons aim to prevent, diagnose, and treat any injury or condition that affects the human musculoskeletal system, which includes bones, muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments throughout the body. When we talk about treatment, we refer to both conservative methods (medication, immobilization, reduction, etc.) and the various surgical options that can be evaluated depending on the condition.
As an orthopedic surgeon in Panama, I am qualified to address and resolve:
WHEN AND WHY SHOULD YOU SEE AN ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON?
No matter how mild an injury may seem, it is always advisable to seek the opinion of an expert. Due to the nature of traumatic episodes, there can be internal tissue damage that may be detrimental to the patient.
In such cases, the orthopedic surgeon conducts a comprehensive clinical assessment to rule out complications and provide a specific treatment tailored to the identified condition.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON AND A RHEUMATOLOGIST?
Although both specialties deal with the musculoskeletal system, there are certain aspects that differentiate them. For example, a rheumatologist is a primary care physician who treats osteomuscular and/or rheumatic conditions resulting from an inflammatory, metabolic, or autoimmune process. On the other hand, an orthopedic surgeon has the ability to handle more complex cases that require surgical or orthopedic interventions (fractures with and without exposure, prosthetics, bone grafts, etc.).
A rheumatologist primarily employs a conservative approach focused on physical treatment and rehabilitation. In contrast, an orthopedic surgeon is authorized to perform surgeries, enabling them to promptly address severe cases that exceed the scope of a rheumatologist.
