Fellowship Description:

The San Francisco Shoulder and Elbow Fellowship offers highly specialized training in a unique private practice academic environment.  While carrying on the tradition of providing the highest level of training in tertiary and revision reconstructive shoulder and elbow surgery, the fellowship also offers broad exposure to all facets of shoulder and elbow surgery, including fracture management and sports medicine components.  Drs. Jim Kelly and Mark Schrumpf, who are partners in California Pacific Orthopaedics, the largest and highest volume private orthopaedic practice in San Francisco, lead the fellowship.  Therefore, additional operative experience is available and encouraged from our other shoulder specialist partners, Drs. Belzer and Chan, sports shoulder specialists, and Drs. Green and Valone, elbow specialists.  Our most recent fellow’s experience encompassed over 450 cases.  Approximately 1/2 of the cases are primary or revision arthroplasty, 1/4 are arthroscopic cases, and the remainder are a combination including fracture care, tendon reconstruction or repair, open instability, and other miscellaneous cases.   Approximately 10% of the cases are elbow operations.  The fellow case list is available upon request.  International applicants are welcome to apply.  However, fellows must obtain their own VISAs.  A California medical license is required.  Additional information is available at
