The Orthopaedic Trauma Fellowship facilitates development of broad expertise in management of orthopaedic trauma patients, especially in decision-making and the prioritization of treatment when the patient has multiple injuries.

Curriculum and Expectations

Surgical techniques, including indirect reduction and biological internal and external fixation, are emphasized along with a comprehensive approach to postoperative care and rehabilitation. Special focus is placed on a team-based approach and the surgical management of patients with complex orthopaedic trauma (including polytrauma; periarticular fractures; long-bone fractures; complex articular fractures, including pelvic and acetabular fractures; the shoulder; elbow; hip; knee; ankle and foot).

The posttraumatic reconstruction of malunions, nonunions, and infections is also emphasized in addition to minimally invasive fracture surgery. Super specialized areas of interest such as pelvic osteotomies for dysplasia, the management of chronic posttraumatic pelvic pain, limb inequality, and an approach to posttraumatic deformity will also be included. The fellow participates in teaching residents and medical students and in researching clinical and basic science projects.
