Specializes in Orthopedic Surgery

Outcomes data: Many surgical treatments have published results regarding outcome, patient satisfaction, complication rate, etc. Your surgeon should be able to provide specific data, not only about published data, but also their personal outcomes. Ask how many specific procedures have they performed, and do they have specialized training. Finally, go get a 2nd opinion and cross-reference your answers. Good luck!
