46 years experience Orthopedic Surgery
Surgeon: I suspect "ortopedic" is a typo. That being the case, an orthopedic surgeon one would assume completed a surgical residency program and hopefully is certified by the american board of orthopedic surgery. Many others call themselves orthopedic doctors including some primary care doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists with a doctorate degree. Check the board status.
