Physicians have become more specialized than ever before. Don't just settle for any surgeon - find one who focuses exclusively on your particular issue.
The more frequently a surgeon does a procedure, the more skilled he or she will be at it. Look for experience and training.
Here are what some key designations signify:
Fellowship Training: Refers to education undergone following a surgeon's initial residency. Once a surgeon has completed a Fellowship, he/she is considered a specialist. Fellowships are required in order to practice specialized surgery.
Board Certification: A physician that is Board-certified has taken and passed a medical specialty examination. Being Board-certified, also referred to as Diplomate, is the highest level of qualification in this country. Board eligible, by contrast, means that a physician has completed the requirements for admission to a medical specialty board examination, but has not yet taken and passed the examination. Physicians typically are required to complete multiple years of approved training before they become board eligible. Then, they must pass a comprehensive examination in order to be certified in a particular specialty.
Residency: Once a physician has finished his or her internship, he or she can receive residency training in a specialized area - such as surgery, internal medicine, pathology, etc.
Internship: Following medical school, doctors engage in an internship - a year of additional training at a hospital.
Get a Second Opinion - When it comes to a complex diagnosis or procedure, it's always smart to get a second opinion - even if it just confirms you're headed in the right direction.
