Here is my best explanation:

'medical speciality' is the definition.
The definition suggests a singular noun which matches the answer.

'doctor has pie prepared' is the wordplay.
'prepared' is an anagram indicator.
'doctor'+'has'+'pie'='doctorhaspie'
'doctorhaspie' with letters rearranged gives 'ORTHOPAEDICS'.

'as' acts as a link.
