Dr. Andrew Bronstein answered

Specializes in Hand Surgery

Orthopaedist: Typically an orthopaedic surgeon treats tendon and ligament injuries, although rheumatologists and physiatrists can treat more mild conditions by medicinal means. All three specialists can splint, prescribe and inject, while only orthopaedists are trained to also apply surgical treatment options.
