Under the supervision of our faculty, fellows will examine and treat hundreds of patients with a wide variety of musculoskeletal conditions in our Sports Medicine Clinic. This experience provides fellows the opportunity to fine-tune physical examination skills, learn the presenting features of common and uncommon sports medicine conditions, and master both operative indications and non-operative treatment options for a broad variety of musculoskeletal sports-related conditions. In addition, fellows will become well-versed in rehabilitation protocols while interfacing with sport-specialized physical therapists who work side-by-side with our physicians.
Fellows participate in 600-800 sports medicine surgical cases over the course of their fellowship year, including knee, shoulder, and hip arthroscopic procedures, ligament/capsular reconstructions/repairs, rotator cuff and other tendon repairs, cartilage restoration procedures, and patellar stabilizations. By a process of graduated autonomy, fellows assume increasing responsibility as the year progresses. They work throughout the entire year with all sports faculty surgeons, facilitating the observation of patient disease progression or recovery, and enabling progress under the year-long tutelage of each faculty member.
