All joint replacement procedures are performed by orthopedic surgeons. Some surgeons have completed additional training in joint replacement surgery called "Fellowships". Many joint replacements are performed perfectly by surgeons without this extra training, however, the most experienced surgeons are both Board Certified and Fellowship trained. In addition, your surgeon should seek to educate you about the procedure, be attentive to your questions, open to a second opinion, and produce a feeling of confidence in your choice.
