Do well in Highschool, get good SAT scores so that you can be accepted into a respected Pre-Med University, Enter Med School after doing well in college, after Med school select a specialty and continue. It's a time consuming process but certainly what the public expects from the medical profession.

Who is the best orthopedic surgeon in the US?

It all depends how you want to define best. Some surgeons devote more time to research, and they're often quite well known. Some surgeons perform specific, unusual procedures that they have been specially trained to do. Some orthopedic surgeons gain notoriety by being the physician of politician or professional sports team or player. There is no simple way to define the best surgeon. First, it is very unusual that you would have to travel a great distance to find a very good orthopedic surgeon. There are thousands of well-trained, experienced orthopedic surgeons throughout the United States. Secondly , surgeons who perform the most common procedures the most frequently, may not be particularly well known by the above criteria.
