The Complex Joint Reconstruction fellowship program represents the continued commitment of HSS to train clinicians in the evaluation and management of patients in the musculoskeletal specialty of hip and knee arthroplasty. The one-year clinical fellowship is designed to provide the fellow with an ongoing, in-depth experience in the management of patients undergoing complex primary joint replacement and revision surgery. Emphasis is placed on the preoperative evaluation and operative management of these problems. The fellowship will accomplish these objectives through didactic clinical lectures, academic conferences, supervised patient care, in-depth surgical exposure, and research projects that support the concepts and skills learned in the clinical arena.
The CJRC Clinical Fellowship emphasizes the critical thinking needed to asses and care for complex cases. Candidates completing the fellowship will have developed sound principles and sufficient experience to manage these musculoskeletal disorders. A strong emphasis is on an apprenticeship surgical training model. Working closely with a small group of dedicated attendings with a high volume revision and complex primary practice over the course of the fellowship year. The expectation is that the clinical fellow will have the surgical ability and experience to create and execute an operative plan for a range of complex cases including a facility with revision exposure techniques, performing femoral and tibial osteotomies, and have the capability to use multiple implant systems. The goal is to provide highly motivated physicians with the clinical knowledge and research skills necessary for a successful academic and clinical career focused on challenging cases in joint reconstruction.
