A medical degree Residency One year of general surgery training Four years of training in orthopedic surgery In the United States, orthopedic surgeons have typically completed four years of undergraduate education and four years of medical school.

it's not orthopedic school. it's 4 years of college then 4 years of medical school. then 1 year internship then 4 year residency. prices vary depending on what college and medical school you go to. medical school is extremely difficult to get into. and is very expensive. then you need to have specific orthopedic training after all of that school


Spine surgery is performed by doctors who have completed training in either neurosurgery or orthopedic surgery. To become a spine surgeon you must have a medical degree (8 years after high school); then complete a residency in either orthopedic surgery (5 years) or neurosurgery (6-7 years). Orthopedic surgeons who wish to specialize in spine surgery usually complete a spine fellowship following their residency, which is an additional 1 to 2 years of training. Neurosurgery residency provides adequate exposure to spine surgery, but some neurosurgeons choose to spend an additional year in spine fellowship. So, including college, medical school, residency and fellowship it takes between 14 and 16 years of post high school education to become a spine surgeon.


With around 15 - 18 years of experience, your salary range would be in the area $500,000 to $600,000, depending on where you work and what job duties you have. Many orthopedic surgeons take on administrative duties in hospitals and clinics which can contribute to an increase of income.

Make sure what you want to make of the years you spend in college.

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!


it totally depends on which country your in...here in America, school is till 12th Grade and then there is 4 years of College, and then 2 years of University....so in this case its 4 years of college..
