What is the educational training for a fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon?

Board-certified, fellowship-trained surgeons like Dr. Grimsley have completed a minimum of 14 years of formal education in the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and prevention of injuries and diseases of the musculoskeletal system (bones and joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage). This includes four years of undergraduate study, four years of medical school, five years of orthopaedic residency at a major medical institution, and one year of specialized training in a specific field of orthopaedics in an accredited fellowship program.
