The best part of orthopedics can often be seeing how your patient's quality of life is improved. One very challenging part is realizing that there is nothing to do to improve your patient's quality of life. That situation can make you feel very powerless.
The hardest part is the journey. I am in medical school right now and getting the grades, research, and connections to get into such a competitive field is difficult. That being said, if you put your mind to it and work harder than those around you it is achievable.
