First of all, since she gets to decide who can fill the fellowship position, does this make her the Head of Fetal Surgery? And second, is she also a pediatric surgeon, and thus dubble board certified? Tooniee (Page me!) 10:25, September 27, 2014 (UTC)

  • I think yes for the first one, not necessarily for the second. Addison was a fetal surgeon, but not a pediatric surgeon. Nerdfightergirl (talk) 12:32, September 27, 2014 (UTC)
  • The show doesn't appear to follow real-life medicine with fetal surgery being a sub-speciaty of peds surgery. Every incarnation of a fetal surgeon on the show, either Grey's or Private Practice, has been from an OBGYN/maternal-fetal background. So fetal surgeons are not pediatric surgery sub-specialists, but surgery-focused maternal-fetal specialists. Also, Arizona confirmed that fetal surgery is a "another specialty in a different department", so not in pediatric surgery. 108.9.235.53 12:36, November 3, 2014 (UTC)
