Surgeon: I suspect "ortopedic" is a typo. That being the case, an orthopedic surgeon one would assume completed a surgical residency program and hopefully is certified by the american board of orthopedic surgery. Many others call themselves orthopedic doctors including some primary care doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists with a doctorate degree. Check the board status.See 1 more doctor answer

What can I expect from an orthopedic surgeon appointment? I may be going to an orthopedic surgeon to see if I have injured ligaments/tendons. What can I expect?
Hello.: Hello. The surgeon will take history from you and then do a physical examination. The doctor will inspect visually for abnormalities. He or she will palpate to see if there is tenderness or to determine if things feel correct. The doctor will check your passive (doctor moves it) and active (you move it) range of motion. It is also likely that the doctor will do some brief assessment to ensure that the nerves and blood vessels are working correctly. The doctor may obtain xrays if not already done. In some cases the doctor wil order a special study like a mri. The doctor will discuss his or her findings with you and advise of possible treatment options. If surgery is medically indicated, it is not usually done at the first office visit (exception would be a medical emergency).See 1 more doctor answer

Thank god.See 2 more doctor answers
