Uniqueness of orthopedy is the usage of therapeutic methods and special equipments, which cannot be used in any other medical field. Just orthopedy uses ortheses for treatment (special devices put on a limb to improve functionality or to correct deformations, such as corsets of different types and forms)and prostheses (body parts or limb models installed on the site of an injury or serious pathology to recover functions partially or fully). Speaking about orthopedy we must not forget about the importance of pediatric orthopedy. Since the child’s organism and musculoskeletal system are in process of continual development and growth,thus the treatment of deformities and abnormalities is carried out in accordance with this characteristic feature.
