Default What is another name for a "bone doctor"?

I just need to know the formal term for a bone doctor or bone specialist. You know, how foot doctors are called podiatrists...
This is referring to the CALCIUM PHOSPHATE bone.

isn't orthopedics the bone division of medicine? Like orthopedic surgeons work on joint replacments and bone fractures and stuff.

Orthopod is the doctor, Orthopedics is the practice.

Another flavor of similar Doc is an Osteopath. Osteopathics is kind of a cross between Chiropractics and "traditional" medicine.

FWIW
