In brief: Depends on the cause

Bone or joint injuries are usually treated by orthopedic surgeons, although non-surgical treatments can be done by family physicians, general internists, and physiatrists (physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists.
) if arthritis is involved, especially if it is rheumatoid arthritis, then a rheumatologist will usually treat this disorder.

In brief: Orthopaedic Surgeon

Do a search for "orthopaedic surgeon" and your city name to get a list of physicians in your area.
It's preferable, however, to ask your primary care physician for a referral to a surgeon with a good reputation that will communicate well with your regular doctor.
