Orthopedic surgeons within the Kaiser Permanente health system can be found through the company's website. Individuals can complete a search for a specialist, such as an orthopedic surgeon, within a selected geographic area, explains Kaiser Permanente.
From the Kaiser Permanente main page, click on the Find a Doctor section of the website, then select a geographic area from the drop-down menu, suggests Kaiser Permanente. Enter the appropriate search terms and information into the provided boxes, and select Orthopedics in the drop-down menu for specialties. After clicking the search button, a list of orthopedic specialists is provided.
Clicking on each specialist's name leads to a separate page with more detailed information about that doctor, notes Kaiser Permanente. Most specialists provide biographical information in addition to general information about their practice. For example, some specialists discuss where they attended medical school and completed their residency. They may also indicate whether they specialize in a certain area of orthopedic medicine such as total joint replacement or spine surgery.
Appointments can be made with a specific orthopedic surgeon by clicking on the Appointment Request page and entering valid Kaiser Permanente login information. If an individual does not have a valid Kaiser Permanente user name and password, he may contact member services at the appropriate telephone number provided for each state on the member assistance portion of the company's website, according to Kaiser Permanente.
