Goals and Characteristics
The fellowship in adult reconstruction surgery at Hospital for Special Surgery offers comprehensive training in joint replacement surgery, derived from over 8,700 yearly primary and revision hip and knee replacements. Training in upper extremity joint replacement is also available during the fellowship year. Arthroscopy procedures, including hip arthroscopy, are also performed during the fellowship year. 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 21 full-time arthroplasty surgeons, resulting in a broad range of operative experience.
