Fellowship Trained Surgeons
After an orthopedic surgeon completes their 5-year residency training, they choose a sub-specialty within orthopedic surgery to focus on throughout their career. They apply for a 1-year fellowship program in their area of interest, and upon completion, they are "fellowship-trained" in their domain. Fellowship-trained surgeons can go into academic practice or private practice. By hiring orthopedic surgeons who are fellowship-trained, we ensure that each of our surgeons have extensive expertise in their area of interest.
