Clinical Advances

Our orthopaedic surgeons are familiar with all aspects of the musculoskeletal system, and many specialize in certain areas, such as the foot and ankle, spine, knee, or sports medicine. Orthopaedic surgeons are medical doctors with extensive training in the proper diagnosis and treatment of injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system, who have completed up to 14 years of formal education.

  • Four years of study in a college or university
  • Four years of study in medical school
  • Five years of study in orthopaedic residency at a major medical center
  • One optional year of specialized education
