Default Post MS ortho/surgery residency match?

I am an IMG and completed my internship in March 2012. I wish to take up surgical branches, and as far as I have read on this site and other forums, I have found that surgical branches are pretty difficult to get for IMGs.

In my country, i do have a chance to do ortho/surgery. I just want to know whether there are any options available to me after finishing my ortho/surgery degree here to clear USMLE and get an appropriate residence match there.

What should I do in the meanwhile to improve my chances?

thanks in advance!
