Mission: To train leaders of the field of Hip Surgery and Joint Preservation through innovation, research, education, at a clinical center of excellence.
Fellows will be trained in all aspects of hip preservation surgery, and will gain a unique foundation in complex hip arthroscopy. Training will focus heavily on minimally-invasive techniques for treatment of labral tears, FAI, subspine and ischiofemoral impingement, dysplasia, and microinstability.
Comprehensive surgical hip skills include:
- Arthroscopic complex labral repair
- Circumferential labral reconstruction
- 3D planning and correction of FAI
- Capsular plication and reconstruction
- Ligamentum teres reconstruction
- Osteochondral management (microfracture, subchondroplasty, osteoarticular allograft)
- Endoscopic gluteus medius repair
- Endoscopic hamstring repair
- Peri-acetabular osteotomy (PAO)
- Birmingham hip resurfacing
- Hip arthroplasty (direct anterior, posterior, and Mako robotic-assisted)
This highly specialized fellowship prepares trainees for a focused niche practice in Hip Preservation. Fellows with academic interests benefit from the strong research program, based in a collaborative, learning environment. The fellowship is ideally suited for trainees graduating from a sports medicine fellowship who wish to obtain further training in a second fellowship. However, application is also open to graduating residents.
Duration: 1-2 years
Compensation: up to $80,000 annually
