A note on "fellowship training":

In order to become an orthopedic surgeon, all surgeons must go through a rigorous training program including undergraduate college, medical school, internship, and orthopedic surgical residency. At the completion of this, the physician is deemed a general orthopedic surgeon and is capable of doing most orthopedic surgical procedures. However, some surgeons will choose to spend another year to further their studies in a special subset of orthopedic surgery, such as sports medicine, arthroscopic surgery, joint replacement, or foot/ankle surgery, to name a few. This additional, optional year of training is called a fellowship. Typically, the "Fellow Orthopedic Surgeon" will work with one of the world's experts in that particular field and do a tremendous number of surgical cases to hone his/her skills in that area. Because they are already trained orthopedic surgeons, the amounts of hands-on surgery that they are able to do far exceeds that which might have been done in residency. In addition, they will further the research of that field of orthopedics and develop new technologies.

At Advanced Orthopedic Specialists, all our physicians are fellowship trained. We feel that this additional training is very important to provide our patients with the highest level of state-of-the-art care in the field of orthopedic surgery, which has expanded tremendously in the last few decades.
