While the mean annual wage for orthopedic surgeons — excluding pediatric surgeons — is $378,250, the mean wage at outpatient care centers reaches $429,450. 

Of 14,820 employed orthopedic surgeons in the U.S., only 250, or .02% of the workforce, are employed at outpatient facilities. The highest percentage of orthopedic surgeons (41%) are employed at physicians' offices.
