An orthopedic surgeon is also called an orthopedist.
Most of the orthopedic surgeons choose to practice general orthopedics whereas others specialize in certain areas of the body.
Thus an orthopedic surgeon with the same qualification could be a foot surgeon, hand surgeon, shoulder surgeon, spine surgeon or knee surgeon based on his interest and concentrating on the particular region.
The orthopedics is fast leading to many super-specialties with many universities starting formal courses in the specialty.
