The Fellowship is offered under the direction of Roy Sanders, MD. A high volume of operative cases in pelvic and acetabular surgery, periarticular fractures, complex polytrauma, as well as reconstructive surgery, including corrections of malunions/nonunions using AO and Ilizarov techniques, and acute/revision arthroplasty is seen. A large practice of pediatric trauma, upper extremity and lower extremity trauma, soft tissue management, and traumatic sequelae (infection, deformity, post-traumatic arthritis) is also part of this program. The business of medicine is taught through instruction on surgical billing and coding and practice management. Teaching and mentoring of residents and medical students is expected. Career guidance through learning about and evaluating employment models, organizational involvement, and career development are emphasized. A wealth of well-documented clinical material obtained through our OTS registry as well as access to resources at FORE permit ample opportunities for research.
Applicants must have completed an accredited Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program prior to the Fellowship, and must be Board Eligible.
Orthopaedic Trauma Fellowship positions are offered through the SF Match and sanctioned by the Orthopaedic Trauma Association.
