U.S. orthopedic surgeons complete a five-year residency. Those who elect to focus on a specialty may pursue fellowship training post residency. The fellowship training provides an opportunity to learn from national leaders while exposing the surgeon to specialized surgery cases. In short, fellowship-trained translates to extra education from leaders in the field which results in specialist surgeons.
