Question Spine Fellowship

How do you find out if the Dr. has a Spine Fellowship regardles is he's an Nuerosurgeon or Orthopedic. I have been thinking about seeing Dr. David Ditworth in CA who performs the Endoscopic Discetocmy, I seen a message from someone saying the best is to have a Dr. with a Spine Fellowship.

How about just calling the office and asking if he has done a spine fellowship?

Re: Spine Fellowship

His affiliated hopsital should have a website which lists bios on all docs; if not well in this day and age that would be kindof weird. Take the info listed on the bio to confirm if you want. Good luck!
