Bucks County personal injury lawyer Michael L. Saile, Jr. has posted a new article which highlights the field of orthopedics as it applies to auto accident injury. Philadelphia area accident victims who require orthopedic surgery or an orthopedic physical therapist, or both, can learn more about the medical training for those professionals as well as the types of injuries they are likely to treat.
Excluding a possible fellowship, orthopedic surgeons, for example, must have thirteen years of training at a minimum. Philadelphia area accident victims can take heart that much training is required of those orthopedists from whom they might seek: foot or ankle surgery, hand surgery, shoulder surgery or knee surgery.
Similarly, orthopedic physical therapists, who are trained to diagnose and treat injury of the musculoskeletal system, are required to obtain a Master’s degree and acquire a state license. Further, most of them opt to attain certification from the American Physical Therapy Association by completing at least 2,000 hours in an orthopedic practice.
