What we do  

Orthopaedic Surgery of the extremities

Orthopaedic surgeons are the primary providers of musculo-skeletal medical care both surgical and non-operative. The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery certifies completion of a rigorous training program followed by multiple years in practice after which a comprehensive examination determines the ability of each doctor to claim "board certification" in the specialty of orthopedics. Recertification every 10 years mandates a career-long dedication to keeping up with new techniques through continuing medical education.
