Board Certification requires completion of an approved residency training program for five or more years following graduation from medical school. Each surgeon then needs to pass a rigorous certifying examination administered by the American Board of Surgery. Every surgeon in our practice also regularly attends continuing medical education seminars in order to stay up-to-date on all new developments in the field of surgery. In addition, every surgeon is responsible for taking re-certifying examinations every 10 years. This assures our patients that the surgeons in our practice who care for you have achieved and continue to maintain the highest level of expertise available to you anywhere.
