Does it Mean to be Board Certified by the ABOS?
Certification by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery
means that the orthopaedic surgeon has met the specified
educational, evaluation, and examination requirements
of the Board.
1986 the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery has issued
time limited certificates. Those orthopaedic surgeons
who were certified in 1986 and thereafter must maintain
their certification by completing 120 hours of pertinent
continuing medical education, undergoing a stringent
peer review process to make certain they are respected
by their peers and practicing ethical orthopaedic surgery,
and taking and passing a written or oral examination.
This maintenance of certification process must be performed
every seven to ten years.
