In order to become a pediatric surgeon, you must complete 4 yrs. of undergrad college, 4 yrs. of medical school, 1 yr. surgical residency & 5 yrs. general surgery. After that, you must receive approval from the American Surgical Board, then you will finally become a pediatric surgeon! If you want to specialize in a surgical field, you must complete 2 additional years from that training field.

Regardless of the type of surgery that you are planning, you should always choose a surgeon who has lots of experience with cases specifically like yours. Therefore, when seeking an ear surgeon for a child, you should look for one who has performed many such procedures on children. It does not have to be a pediatric specialist; just be sure that the person has done many such operations on children. Since placing tubes in the ears is primarily done on children, as long as the surgeon you choose has done many of these procedures, you should be fine.

A surgeon needs 4 years of undergraduate college (usually), 4 years in medical school and a five year residency in general surgery. now, if you plan on a specialty in surgery then you are looking at another 2-6 years, depending on the specialty (with neurosurgery taking the most time).
