It takes approximately 14 years, minimum. It's a hard career, but very rewarding afterwards.

it takes fourteen years to become orthopedic/orthopedic surgeon.....four years college with many science classes, four years of medical school, one year internship and five years of residency.

On average the residency for an Orthopedic Surgeon is around 5 years with 1 year of General Surgery. In some cases the residency can be as low as 4 years.

The schooling to be an orthopedic surgeon is quite long. It begins with 4 years of undergrad work, followed by 4 years of medical school. You will then be required to complete at least 2 years of training in surgery and a residency.

How long does it take to become a surgeon

The equipment used by the Orthopaedic Surgeon will depend upon the operation he is performing and the list is too long to elaborate

4 years college 4 years med school 4-6 years of residency All in all 12-14 years

It may very well take approximately 14 years to become an Orthopedic Surgeon. You would start with four years of college with an undergraduate degree focused on biology, physics and chemistry. Follow that four years of medical school, one year of an internship and four years of a residency and an optional one year study of a fellowship.

It takes about 13 years to become a plastic surgeon (4 years of college, 7 years of schooling, and 2 years of training).

You have to be more specific on your symptoms. If you knee cap is painful then you need to see an orthopedic surgeon for evaluation. If you do not experience pain then there is probably no long term effects.

AnswerThe degree you need to become a surgeon is a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) or a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.), which takes about 8 years in addition to a residency program working in a hospital. No master's degree is required to become a surgeon.

After completing your school you will require another 12 to 13 years to train as a Neuro surgeon

I just had a cortison injection in my knee and asked the doctor (orthopedic surgeon) that very question. He answered--a few days. I just had on from my otho surgeon in my shoulder and he said it depends on the person. It could last form a day to months!

it depends on what type of surgeon but it will take up to atleast 12 years atleast 8 to 13 years of college

it takes 75 long years of HARD work and happiness to work as a ps.

A pediatric plastic surgeon is a surgeon who only specializes in surgery of children, a pediatric plastic surgeon does craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, etc. most pediatric plastic surgeons work in a children hospital

It depends, how good of a surgeon you are. You also shouldn't be going into it for the money, if your really serious about the medical field you should go into it because you have a passion for it. It takes a very long time to become any kind of physician especially a surgeon. It takes 4 years for college, 4 years med school and 3-7 years residency depending on the type of surgeon you wish to become. So for becoming a fully board certified surgeon it takes on average about 12 to 15 years. I would have to say Orthopedic, Vascular, and Plastic surgeons make the most. If your a very busy orthopedic surgeon you can make up to $1,000,000 a year! Vascular surgeons work on the veins and blood passageways. They make about $700,000 dollars a year! Plastic surgeons on average make $400,000 dollars a year although plastic surgeons working in California make about four million a year because of high demand of the celebrities and people who are trying to become celebrities. Anyways I hope I helped answer you question! Good luck if you do follow the path to becoming a surgeon!

3 to 4 years undergrad, then 3 or 4 years of Medical school, and then 2 years if you want practice with a surgeon or PhD.

They'll usually make at least 250,000 a year but can move into the millions every year for those who have done the job for a long time. Source: Harvard Medical Student

Disect a monkey I am an orthopedic surgeon. It is a long process. 1. Four years of college 2. Four years of medical school 3. Five years of orthopedic residency 4. One year of fellowship That is 14 years of education after high school. Other surgical specialties, such as general surgery, neurosurgery, plastic surgery, etc are similar in total length, but differ slightly in terms of length of residency.

It takes more than just going to college to become an orthopaedic surgeon. I believe the question was more likely how many years of education and that can depend on a few factors but for the most part it is as follows: 4 years of College 4 years of Medical School (Graduate School) 5 years of Residency in Orthopaedics 1 year of Fellowship Training in a particular area of interest (not required) So it can be as quick (or as long) as 13 years

It takes more than 10 years with a qualified training and work experience. It takes step by step study to become a fully qualified plastic surgeon. Very hard!!
