Board Certification

After completing an accredited training program, a physician participates in a series of written knowledge-based and oral practice based examinations. If those exams are passed, then the physician may apply for board certification within that specialty. Typically the board certification is given under the auspices of the American Board of Medical Specialties. Drs. Wint  and  Wintman   have Board Certification in Orthopaedic Surgery.
