5 states with fewer than 100 orthopedic surgeons


Five states in the U.S. currently have fewer than 100 practicing orthopedic surgeons, according to April 25 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics occupational employment statistics survey. 

Two of those states, including Wyoming and Idaho, also do not have an orthopedic residency program. 

Over half of residents (55.5 percent) who completed training from 2010 to 2019 practiced medicine in the states where they completed their residencies, according to data from the Association of American Medical Colleges. 

Note: Employment data was unavailable for nine states. 

The five states with fewer than 100 orthopedic surgeons: 

1. Wyoming: 60 

2. New Mexico: 60 

3. Vermont: 60 

4. West Virginia: 50 

5. Idaho: 30
