  • Thanks for the tips! I’ve been having trouble finding a good orthopedic surgeon lately. These tips should help me find the right surgeon to help with my condition. I really liked what you had to say in tip #4. It seems like the right surgeons would care about how well their patients recover from surgery. It’s very helpful to know that a good surgeon would recommend the best physical therapists to help their patients recover from surgery in the best way possible.

  • If you’re looking for an orthopedic surgeon to do your ACL surgery, it makes sense to find someone that performs that specific surgery a lot. I’m not sure how comfortable I’d be with picking someone that only does it a handful of times every year. I’d be a lot more trusting if they perform it over a hundred times, like you had mentioned.
