These include adult reconstructive orthopaedic surgery, primary and revision joint replacement of the hip and knee, ambulatory and complex spinal surgery, foot and ankle surgery, shoulder and elbow surgery, surgery of the hand and wrist, orthopaedic oncologic surgery, surgical treatment of fractures and other orthopaedic trauma, as well as a large variety of arthroscopic and sports medicine procedures.
The orthopaedic surgery faculty practice suite is located on the eighth floor of the hospital and provides comprehensive orthopaedic care. Orthopaedic surgeons in all orthopaedic specialties are readily available to see patients in outpatient consultation and follow up care in a state of the art office facility. An outpatient physical and occupational therapy center is available on site.
Orthopaedic surgical conferences are held each weekday throughout the academic year and include lectures by attending staff and a monthly morbidity and mortality conference. There are ongoing departmental performance improvement programs including quality assurance and continuing medical education, as well as an active clinical research program.
