Physicians & Staff
Our orthopedic surgeons are “board certified,” which means they have met the education and examination requirements of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, the organization which sets the standards for this specialty. To maintain certification they must complete continuing education courses and meet other requirements on a regular basis.
In addition to four years of medical school and five years of residency, orthopedic surgeons may also complete a fellowship, an in-depth training program of one year or more in a specific subspecialty, such as sports medicine, joint replacement or hand surgery. This allows surgeons to achieve a deeper understanding of specific areas of expertise and bring this knowledge into their work with patients.
