Dr. Theodore Koreckij

Leawood, Kan. – Theodore D. Koreckij, M.D., has successfully completed the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery’s Stage II oral certifying examination. Dr. Koreckij is a spine surgeon at Dickson-Diveley Orthopaedics, one of three onsite orthopedic physician practices located inside Kansas City Orthopaedic Institute.

With this recent certification, Dr. Koreckij is now a Diplomate of the Board, also more commonly known as a board-certified orthopedic surgeon.

The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, based in Chapel Hill, N.C., establishes educational standards for orthopedic residents and evaluates the initial and continuing qualifications and competence of orthopedic surgeons. As a board-certified orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Koreckij has demonstrated his commitment to the highest quality care and continuing medical education.

Board certification is a voluntary process on the part of any physician. It is different and distinct from licensure to practice medicine, a function regulated by state government. A valid medical license is required to be board certified, but certification is not necessary for licensure. A board-certified physician has met certain standards and passed tests that are developed to assure the public that he or she has been adequately trained in a given specialty.
