Our fellowship is designed to provide exposure to a large volume and a variety of reconstructive and traumatic surgical problems in the shoulder and the elbow as well as teaching and research opportunities for individuals interested in pursuing an academic career.
The fellowship includes several rotations on different orthopedic surgery services. Our faculty includes six faculty members with different practice profiles, including open and arthroscopic reconstructive shoulder procedures, open and arthroscopic reconstructive elbow procedures, sport-related injuries, tendon transfers, scapulothoracic surgery, and acute shoulder and elbow trauma. We provide a balanced exposure to both shoulder and elbow problems and adjust the rotation schedule for each fellow based on their anticipated needs and previous background and training.
The Fellows participate actively in preoperative consultations, surgical procedures and postoperative management. In addition, the Fellows have access to additional training through teaching conferences and journal clubs, on-site courses and our anatomy laboratory. Research is a prominent part of our program, enhanced by our carefully monitored patient registries and close cooperation with the basic science laboratories, division of statistics, and medical illustrators.
