Congratulations Dr. Starr! 

Dr. Starr

Dr. H. McMillan Starr, Jr., MD is now a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and is Board Certified in Orthopaedic Surgery.

 

WHAT IS BOARD CERTIFICATION?

Certification by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery means that the orthopaedic surgeon has met the specified educational, evaluation, and examination requirements of the Board and is considered to be a distinguished orthopaedic surgeon who is active in patient care, education and research.

WHAT IS THE AMERICAN BOARD OF ORTHOPAEDIC SURGERY?

The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, Inc. was founded in 1934 as a private, voluntary, nonprofit, independent organization to serve the best interests of the public and the medical profession. These interests are achieved through the ABOS by establishing standards for the education of orthopaedic surgeons. These standards are evaluated by the ABOS through examinations and practice evaluations.

MAINTENANCE OF CERTIFICATION

Since 1986 the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery has issued time limited certificates. Those orthopaedic surgeons who were certified in 1986 and thereafter must maintain their certification by completing 240 hours of pertinent continuing medical education, undergoing a stringent peer review process to make certain they are respected by their peers and practicing ethical orthopaedic surgery, and taking and passing a written or oral examination. This maintenance of certification process must be performed every seven to ten years.

Dr. Starr is currently accepting new patients at our Atlanta and Marietta offices.
