Default Residency in Orthopedics in USA

Hi Friends

I believe getting Residency in Orthopedics is really hard.

Can anyone suggest me any possibilities of Orthopedics Residency in US for foreign Medical graduate.

A)I have more than average scores in both Steps( USMLE).

B) I have few months of US clinical experiences in General surgery,trauma and orthopedics.

C) Permanent Residence status in USA.

D) Recently Completed Residency in Orthopedics and trauma surgery from home country(Asia).

Can I try for Orthopedics ?

Do you know any programs that are IMG friendly ( interested in Orthopedics)?

Please suggest me
Thanks in advance
