The Adult Reconstructive Orthopedic Surgery Fellowship program is designed to provide a comprehensive experience in the surgical management of arthritic conditions of the hip and knee.

The fellowship provides extensive experience in surgical procedures including primary and revision total knee and hip arthroplasty, partial knee arthroplasty, custom knee replacements and robotics. There is an emphasis on the direct anterior approach to total hip arthroplasty, including revision.

With one fellow per year, the program offers an individualized approach. The fellow will rotate with three faculty members during the year, obtaining a high-volume, in-depth and personalized surgical experience. In addition to teaching the necessary technical aspects that lead to a skilled and confident surgeon, the art of taking care of patients is emphasized. The fellow is also encouraged to participate in on going investigator-initiated clinical studies.

The mission of the program is to provide an intellectually stimulating and challenging clinical, surgical, and research environment with thorough experience in joint replacement, and sound preparation for building a surgical practice in an academic or private setting.
