Top Ten Highest Paid Medical Specialties

Here's some data from the 2009 AMGA Medical Group Compensation and Financial Survey. I got this table from National MedPoll. Do you think these numbers are accurate? If these are self-reported figures, then they could be inflated. Physician salary ranges tend to vary quite a bit based on your geography and your practice setting. Let's take a look: 

Median Salary in 2009
Orthopedic Surgery – Spine  $641, 728
Orthopedic Surgery – Joint Replacement  $580,711
Neurological Surgery $548,186
Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery  $507,143
Diagnostic Radiology – Interventional  $478,000
Orthopedic Surgery  $476,083
Trauma Surgery  $465,773
Orthopedic Surgery – Hand  $465,006
Diagnostic Radiology – Non-Interventional  $438,115
Transplant Surgery – Liver   $433,333
