Department of Orthopaedic Surgery

With more than 200 bones, the human body's musculoskeletal system is an intricate system of joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves operating together to provide the mobility and strength needed to stand upright, walk or bend. Most never think about how these elements work together to enable them to perform even the simplest of tasks — until one part of the system becomes injured or irritated.

Highly skilled and highly specialized, Penn Orthopaedic physicians treat each joint condition, spinal disorder or sports injury with a personalized approach.

With ten orthopaedic subspecialties, physicians at Penn Orthopaedics not only treat more complex conditions — they are uniquely qualified to treat each condition individually.
