Orthopaedic Surgery Portal

Sub Portals

Orthopaedics is the branch of medicine concerned with diseases, injuries, and conditions of the musculoskeletal system, including the joints, ligaments, tendons, and nerves.

Orthopaedic surgery is made up of physicians and other healthcare professionals who provide treatment and care of diseases, injuries, fractures, and pain. Orthopaedists also design rehabilitation programs for the physically disabled and participate in ongoing musculoskeletal research.

This portal, created in collaboration with Orthopaedic Surgery, lists resources in the UT Southwestern Library’s collection and on the Web that may be helpful in the study and practice of orthopaedics.
