Why Choose an ABS Board Certified Surgeon?

The American Board of Surgery is the leading board that awards board certifications in surgery. Only a limited number of surgeons receive this certification every year after a rigorous selection process. When a patient chooses an ABS board certified surgeon, they are automatically assured that the surgeon would have received a certain minimum number of years of training in surgical procedures.
