The Fellow will be given the opportunity to become proficient with managing the acute issues and definitive treatment of multi-trauma patients, severe peri-articular and soft tissue injuries. Furthermore, the Fellow will become experienced with pelvic and acetabular surgery and in the treatment of complications of Orthopaedic Trauma patients (e.g. non-unions, mal-unions, limb lengthening discrepancies, post-traumatic degenerative disease requiring fusion or arthroplasty, etc.) Our fellowship training is conducted at a Level 2 acute care hospital that is the main trauma center within a densely populated area.
