    Orthopedists specialize in conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. They go through four years of college then four years of medical school and then train in orthopedic surgery for several years. Because of their training as surgeons they tend to look at a problem through surgeons eyes. Some people worry about seeing orthopedists because of their tendency to see a surgical fix for many problems.  They are certainly trained to give you drugs for your pain as well.
