Why Board Certified Matters

Why Board Certified Matters

Board certification by the American Board of Surgery means that a surgeon continues to meet the highest standards of education, training and knowledge in the field of surgery. Board certification is voluntary and requires re-certification every 10 years, thus demonstrating a surgeon’s commitment to quality patient care.

Board certification by the ABS recognizes individuals who have met ABS standards specifically in the area of general surgery and its related specialties. Board certification is different from possessing a medical license, which is the minimum required by state law for an individual to practice medicine and is not specialty specific.
