Top Orthopedic Surgeons


Top Orthopedic Surgeons

Top orthopedic surgeons are relatively easy to find, if you know where to look. There are more than 20,000 orthopedic surgeons active in the United States, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Of those, about 11 percent specialize in the spine, which means if you find yourself considering surgery for chronic neck or back pain, you will have options when it’s time to choose someone to perform the procedure.

Qualifications

What differentiates top orthopedic surgeons from merely adequate practitioners? The measurable, easily researched qualities are experience, training, memberships in professional associations and board certifications. In theory, the longer someone has engaged in a profession, the more competent he or she should be as an orthopedic surgeon. However, nearly as important as longevity is the effort put forth toward continuing education. This is particularly true for those in the medical field, who must remain updated on the latest technological advances in their chosen field. Memberships in associations and board certifications indicate the doctor’s standing within the industry.

What to Look For

In addition to the “on paper” qualifications, it’s important to delve into other factors as you search for the right person to perform your operation. The more you know, the better decision you’ll make, which is why you should take these steps as you consider the options:

  • Ask for a recommendation from your primary care physician
  • Ask friends and family for recommendations
  • Research doctors online at the websites for the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons
  • Don’t be afraid to ask tough questions
  • Don’t simply pick the first doctor you interview; seek a second opinion
  • Make sure you choose a doctor you’re comfortable with, someone whose personality doesn’t clash with yours
