Your best shot at fame is to surgically remove something truly unusual from someone's backside. You still probably won't be known by name, but you may achieve urban legendary status as "the doctor who pulled the Ming vase out of that guy's keister."

Aside from that, you’ll be recognized on an individual and professional basis for your accomplishments, but unless you're butt doctor to the stars, you aren't likely to grab any headlines. Even if your name is Dr. Seymour Butts.
