Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine Fellowship


Children’s Division of Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine provides care for all musculoskeletal conditions in newborns, children, and teens.  The orthopaedic team at Children’s includes pediatric orthopaedic surgeons, pediatric sports medicine specialists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and certified athletic trainers. 

The department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine offers a 12 month intensive fellowship training program that incorporates clinical, research and academic education.  Fellowship candidates must have successfully completed an ACGME-approved residency or equivalent in orthopedic surgery by commencement, and should be seeking a career in pediatric orthopedics.
Fellows work with board-certified faculty members that specialize in various subspecialty areas within our specialty and gain exposure to the diagnosis, conservative and operative management of the entire spectrum of pediatric orthopaedics. 

We treat an extremely high case volume covering the entire spectrum of pediatric orthopedic disorders, including:

  • Musculoskeletal trauma admitted through a busy level 1 trauma center
  • Scoliosis and kyphosis and chest wall deformities of all etiologies, including non-operative, growth-sparing and definitive surgical treatment
  • Clubfoot, hip dislocation and other orthopaedic congenital defects
  • Acute and chronic musculoskeletal infections
  • Musculoskeletal oncology including limb-sparing reconstruction
  • Sports-related injuries in children and adolescents
  • Children and teens with the entire spectrum of neuromuscular disorders, cared for in a team approach with other medical specialists
  • Children with skeletal dysplasias and metabolic disorders of bone
  • Congenital deformities of the hand, arm and shoulder
  • Brachial plexus injuries
