How to choose a good orthopedic doctor in Boca Raton?

If you have ever tried to find an orthopedic surgeon in Boca Raton, then you will know that there are many to choose from. When faced with such a large selection of orthopedic surgeons, it can be difficult to decide who to choose to treat your injury or condition.


We have assembled the following advice below with the goal of helping you decide how to choose your next orthopedic surgeon in Boca Raton.

Check the qualifications of your Boca Raton orthopedic surgeon

There are many orthopedic surgeons in Boca Raton and they are NOT all the same. As a general rule, those with more qualifications are likely to have more training. When it comes to orthopedics the single most important qualification is called “Board Certification”. If a doctor is Board Certified in orthopedics, then it means he or she has demonstrated “exceptional expertise in a particular specialty and/or subspecialty of medical practice”.

In addition to being Board Certified, a doctor may also be Fellowship Trained. This is another indication that the doctor is highly trained in his orthopedic area of expertise. For example, if he is an orthopedic spine surgeon, then you should check if the doctor is Fellowship Trained in orthopedic spine surgery.

Check the online reviews of your Boca Raton orthopedic doctor

We are lucky to live in an age where online reviews are easy to find. There are several different websites where you can read a doctor’s reviews. Google offers many reviews (provided by the public) which you can usually view by simply Googling the name of the doctor, then finding him on the map. For example, you can view Orthopaedic Surgery Associates’ online reviews here. Alternatively, you may want to try which is a site dedicated specifically to reviews of doctors.

Check the specialization of your orthopedic doctor in Boca Raton

There are many different orthopedic specialties. Some doctors are simply general orthopedic surgeons, whereby they accept patients with all conditions. Others specialize, for example orthopedic spine surgeons, orthopedic foot and ankle surgeons, or orthopedic surgeons of the upper extremity (hand, wrist, and shoulder). If a doctor specializes in a certain area of the body, he or she is likely to have more training in this area and some studies have shown better surgical outcomes. So for example if you have injured your back, you may want to consider an orthopedic spine surgeon. Many of Orthopaedic Surgery Associates’ doctors specialize in a certain area of orthopedics.
