Latest update from one of our clients: OSA: Orthopedic or orthopeadic?

Orthopedic or orthopeadic? I’m sure you’ve seen both forms in use and wonder which one of them is used correctly. BUT...

According to, orthopedic is the Americanized version of the word orthopaedic. Both refer to the medical specialty focusing on the body’s musculoskeletal system, which includes bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves.a Orthopaedic comes from the Greek orthos (straight) and paidion (child), which suggests the practice began with a focus on children. The spellings are virtually interchangeable in the United States. However, an institution (such as Orthopeadic Surgery Associates) may use the more original form of spelling to associate itself with the classic meaning and principles of the discipline. Our practice Orthopeadic Surgery Associates follows the example of other prestigious institutions - for example The American Association of Orthopaedic Surgery also uses the classic spelling. Whether you are looking for an orthopedic surgeon in Boca Raton or an orthopaedic surgeon in Boca Raton (note both spellings!), all of our orthopedic surgeons at both locations are available to meet, diagnose, and treat your specific orthopedic requirements.
