Orthopedic surgeons (also spelled orthopaedic)
Training to become an orthopedic surgeon is rigorous and typically includes four years of undergraduate college and four years of medical school, followed by five years of medical residency training.
After successful completion of an orthopedic surgery residency, orthopedic surgeons are eligible to work towards board certification. In order to get certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, a physician must meet specific requirements. Part of this process involves both a written and oral examination.
Some of the most common medical procedures that orthopedic surgeons perform include:
• Arthroscopy on the knee or shoulder
• ACL reconstruction
• Knee or hip replacement surgery
Some orthopedic surgeons like Dr. Grossfeld also complete subspecialty training and certification in areas like sports medicine. For more information about Dr. Grossfeld and Orthopaedic Specialists, go to http://www.louisvillebones.com/
