The Adult Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship focuses on treatment of the hip and knee. At Mayo Clinic in Arizona, the Division of Orthopedic Surgery performs nearly 1,000 orthopedic surgical procedures involving the hip and knee.
The department includes nine orthopedic specialists. Four have subspecialty training in adult reconstructive surgery involving knee and hip injuries, including complete hip replacements. During training, the fellow will be supervised by these specialists.
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's faculty members are committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their field. Fellows will have direct access to the orthopedic surgery faculty at Mayo Clinic in Arizona throughout training.
Advisors and Mentors
Fellows are assigned a faculty advisor who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. The advisor also will serve as a contact point, introducing the fellows and their families to the Mayo Clinic system.
Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during noon and/or morning lectures and participate in hospital rounds. Fellows are encouraged to take full advantage of these opportunities.
