Why does orthopedic “sub-specially training" make a difference?
 

All orthopedic surgeons receive comprehensive training in orthopedic care, which includes 4 years of college, 4 years of medical school, and 5 years of residency. Those surgeons who complete a subspecialty fellowship program do an additional year of specialty training in a specific field of orthopedic surgery.  For example, an orthopedic surgeon with a fellowship in shoulder surgery is an expert with additional specialized training in performing procedures related to the shoulder. So, whatever your orthopedic problem, St. Mary has fellowship-trained orthopedic specialists with the most extensive training there is for that particular orthopedic condition.

 


Who is this service for?

Next Day Orthopedics is designed to help individuals who need to quickly see a specialist for an unexpected orthopedic issue, such as a strain, sprain, or minor fracture. The Next Day service is intended for those who don’t necessarily need a trip to the Emergency Department but can’t wait days or weeks for a scheduled appointment with an orthopedic specialist.
