The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS) establishes educational standards for orthopaedic residents and also evaluates the initial and continuing qualifications and knowledge of orthopaedic surgeons. When an orthopaedic surgeon has been board-certified, he/she has completed all necessary training to be a well-qualified surgeon. The surgeon has been evaluated by surgical peers and rigorously tested to ensure that he/she follows the appropriate standards of practice.
All five North Country Orthopaedic Group surgeons are board-certified or actively engaged in the two year certification process (board-eligible). Some hospitals in Jefferson County have hired non-board-certified surgeons. We believe board certification matters.
