Orthopaedic Medical Illustrations

The team here at Medical artist.com complete medical illustrations working within the specialised medical area of orthopaedics. An area that focuses on injuries and diseases of the body's musculoskeletal system. This complex system includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves.

Interesting Anatomical Facts

Orthopaedic medicine is also involved in the treatement of injuries, disease and conditions relating to the skeleton system and the associated joints, muscles and ligaments. It is where the Orthopaedic surgeon may treat many musculoskeletal conditions and sometimes without surgery, by using medication, exercise and other rehabilitative or alternative therapies. For most orthopaedic diseases and injuries there is more than one form of surgical treatment. These various forms of treatment are illustrated and shown in the gallery below.

Arthroscopy surgery is a surgical procedure orthopaedic surgeons use to visualise, diagnose, and treat problems inside a joint. It is where an instrument called an arthroscope is inserted via key hole surgery, it is a devise containing a tiny video camera that magnifies the area by up to 30 times its normal size.

Note that as UK based medical illustrators we primarily use the spelling orthopaedic, however because of the international nature of our clients you will also see the alternative spelling - orthopedic.
