Joint surgeon: This term usually means an orthopedic surgeon specializing in joint surgery. More specifically a joint replacement surgeon that can reconstruct an injured, malformed or degenerated joint. We can fix the ligaments, bones, muscles and shock absorbers around the joints, and we can put new surfaces or ends back on the bones. We use biologic and manufactured parts during our procedures to fix you.
