Tips for Finding an Orthopedic Surgeon
- Check to make sure your physician is board-certified.
- Ask your physician if he/she has any specialty areas of care that relate to your concern.
- Physicians choose the facilities where they practice. Be sure to ask where your surgeon operates so you will be able to have any surgeries performed at the hospital/outpatient center you want to go to.
