Orthopedics is a field of medicine that diagnoses and treats the diseases and trauma occurring in the limbs and the spine. The bones in the center of the body constitutes the muscular skeletal backbone with ligaments, muscles, nerves and blood vessels to allow free movements.

Therefore, the disease status of the muscular skeletal backbone can determine the quality of life at large. At the orthopedics clinic at Dongguk University Medical Center + Oriental Hospital, treatment areas are subdivided along the following lines to ensure high-quality treatment.

- Spine: Neck herniated disc, degenerative spine disease, spinal stenosis, spinal deformities
- Pediatric: Congenital malformation disease, trauma, infection, developmental disorders
- Hip: Arthritis, avascular necrosis of femur part
- Knee: Arthritis, ligament injuries, meniscus foot lunate injury, sports injury
- Upper extremity: Recurrent dislocations of the shoulder, tendon rupture, shoulder pain, arthritis, peripheral nerve disease
- Trauma : Fractures, dislocations and deformed limbs due to trauma
