Geriatric orthopedics is a subspecialty of orthopedic medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of musculoskeletal disorders and injuries in older patients. Osteoporosis, decreased bone density, degenerative joint disease, and age-related changes in musculoskeletal structure and function all increase the likelihood of having orthopedic disorders as people get older. Geriatric orthopedic experts are trained to address the specific demands and challenges of aged patients, taking into account their general health, functional limits, and quality of life concerns.

Geriatric orthopedic treatment also emphasizes the significance of a comprehensive geriatric assessment, which includes cognitive function, nutritional condition, medication management, and social support systems, in order to address aged patients’ complex medical and psychological demands. Additionally, preventive strategies such as falls prevention programs, osteoporosis screening, and bone health promotion are critical in lowering the incidence of musculoskeletal injuries and improving outcomes in elderly orthopedic patients.

Overall, geriatric orthopedics seeks to improve elderly patients’ musculoskeletal health and overall quality of life through comprehensive evaluation, personalized treatment plans, and multidisciplinary care coordination, with the goal of preserving independence, mobility, and functional independence in later life stages.
