Why should you demand a fellowship trained surgeon?
The journey to become an orthopedic surgeon has many steps. After college, medical school, and years of residency a student spends easily a dozen years all focused on becoming the most skilled surgeon possible. For the very best students, there is the possibility of a fellowship. This fellowship means an extra year or two of training in a subspecialty program. While it is an extra step not every orthopedic surgeon wants to take or even can, it was important to Dr. Collins to do so in order to serve his patients with the sort of confidence in precision a fellowship instills.
After medical school, Dr. Collins was accepted into the University of Miami Department of Sports Medicine’s Orthopedic Sports Medicine Fellowship. This enabled him the opportunity to train with nationally and internationally recognized experts in sports medicine in order to master their special surgical techniques. Technology is changing the field of medicine every year. With that in mind, choose to be in the care of someone who is fellowship-trained and knows how to keep up with the rapid medical advancements.
