Orthopedics, traumatology, and spinal surgery are related medical specialties that focus on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of conditions and injuries affecting the musculoskeletal system, including bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

Orthopedics is the branch of medicine that deals with the prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders and injuries, such as fractures, sprains, strains, and arthritis. Orthopedic surgeons use a variety of non-surgical and surgical treatments to restore mobility, reduce pain, and improve the quality of life for patients.

Traumatology is a subspecialty of orthopedics that focuses on the treatment of acute injuries and conditions resulting from accidents, falls, and other trauma. Trauma surgeons use advanced surgical techniques to repair and reconstruct damaged tissues and bones, and to help patients regain function and mobility after traumatic injuries.

Spinal surgery is a subspecialty of orthopedics that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of spinal conditions and injuries. Spinal surgeons use a range of surgical and non-surgical techniques to treat conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, scoliosis, and spinal cord injuries. They also work closely with neurosurgeons to provide comprehensive care for patients with complex spinal conditions.
