Adult Reconstruction Fellowship
The Adult Reconstruction Fellowship is available for two to three fellows per year. It offers an extensive one-year experience in the clinical care of patients undergoing primary and revision joint replacement of the hip, knee. The tertiary referral practice for a large geographic area ensures sufficient volume of complex and challenging revision hip and knee procedures. In addition, significant experience in Hip Preservation and the care of young adult patients with acetabular dysplasia and femoro-acetabular impingement (periacetabular osteotomy and surgical dislocation of the hip) is offered.
The Fellows will participate in all phases of patient care and will work closely with orthopaedic residents and medical students. Each Fellow will be responsible for at least one clinical and one basic science research project. An extensive clinical database and a well-equipped bioengineering laboratory are available. Teaching responsibilities will include participation in the residency training program and formal Grand Rounds presentations throughout the year. Applicants must have completed an accredited orthopaedic residency program.
