How to Find the Right Orthopedic Surgeon

Published on: September 24, 2018

If you are considering surgery or treatment for a back, spine or sports injury, you want to find an orthopedic surgeon that has the qualifications and experience you need. While there may be many orthopedic clinics to choose from, not all offer the same services and options when it comes to treatment. You deserve to have a surgeon that will give you the personalized, professional care to help you improve your health and quality of life. Here are some tips to help you find the right orthopedic surgeon for your health care.

  • Experience. You want an orthopedic surgeon that has years of experience and a stellar reputation in your community. Ask for testimonials and check reviews on the orthopedic clinic and surgeon you are considering for your treatment.
  • Non-invasive surgery or treatment options. Many orthopedic surgeries that were once open can now be performed with minimally invasive treatments or surgery. This can reduce risks and recovery time, helping you get back to your life quicker. Choose an orthopedic surgeon that offers these advanced options at their clinic.
  • Services. Choose an orthopedic surgeon that offers many different services at their practice to meet all your orthopedic needs. Beyond surgery, injections and orthobiologics can be beneficial treatments for orthopedic issues.
  • Patient-to-provider ratio. Look for an orthopedic clinic that cares about the quality of service they provide. A lower patient-to-provider ratio is a good gauge of the time they spend with their patients.

If you take the time to find the right orthopedic surgeon, you can feel confident in the quality of medical care you will receive. It is worth the time and trouble to research your surgeon and choose the one that will best meet your needs.
