Richard Seldes, MD, Earns Board Recertification in Orthopaedic Surgery
Hackensack, New Jersey—Orthopaedic surgeon Richard Seldes, MD, of Bergen Orthopedics was recently recertified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery (ABOS) for Board Certification in Orthopaedic Surgery and for Subspecialty Certification in Orthopaedic Sports Medicine.
The Subspecialty Certificate is for Board Certified orthopaedic surgeons who have demonstrated qualifications in surgery of the hand/sports medicine beyond those expected of other orthopaedic surgeons by virtue of additional training, a practice characterized by a volume of cases in surgery of the hand/sports medicine, or have made significant contributions to this field.
In order to be recertified, Dr. Seldes passed a recertification examination, received positive reviews from peers in their practice area, had a selected period of surgical cases evaluated, and participated in continuing medical education.
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.

Dr. Richard Seldes, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and director of orthopedic surgery at Northwell Health’s Long Island Jewish Forest Hills hospital since 2006, calls such surgery an “elective procedure,” one that is based on a “personal decision by the patient.”
Some people have such severe pain that they are unable to do things for themselves. “If arthritis affects daily living, it’s usually time to have surgery,” Seldes suggested.
Before that, however, the doctor recommends other routes, including physical therapy.
