The Adult Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship offers comprehensive training in joint replacement surgery, derived from more than 12,000 yearly primary and revision hip and knee replacements. Extensive experience is offered in the management of the complex rheumatoid and the revision patient.
The fellow is expected to attend and participate in all aspects of patient care, including inpatient and outpatient management, related to the reconstructive joint services. An active teaching interest is necessary as the fellow is responsible for instruction of residents and medical students. Research in clinical and/or basic science is expected. The fellowship involves working with 26 full-time arthroplasty surgeons, resulting in a broad range of operative experience.
Clinical areas that represent the core body of knowledge for a graduate of the HSS fellowship program in Adult Reconstruction Surgery (ARS) are: bilateral and unilateral hip and knee replacements, bilateral and unilateral hip and knee revisions.
This curriculum is taught to the fellows via a comprehensive didactic program, and also by observation and participation in the operating room and in the physicians’ private offices.
Through a combination of didactic and Socratic conferences, teaching opportunities, and a high volume of surgical experience, fellows are trained to become leaders in the orthopaedic field with the intent that they take an active and an eventual leadership role in the ABOS, AOA, ORS, AAOS and other organizations.
The Adult Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship incorporates one day per week of dedicated research time into the fellows’ schedules. A program of ongoing research projects has been established to allow fellows to begin immediate participation in currently active projects.
Fellows are expected to complete two research projects during the fellowship year.
HSS will participate in the San Francisco Matching Program (SF Match). Register for the SF Match and select the Adult Hip & Knee and Musculoskeletal Oncology fellowship program.
