Program Summary/Training Goals:

  • The American Health Network Foot and Ankle Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship is a unique opportunity for graduating residents to enhance their surgical training. This is a fellow-first, fellow-driven program with the opportunity to experience a wide variety of foot and ankle pathology. The fellow will be exposed to multiple surgeons, in multiple locations, all well-respected in the community. The goal of our program is to prepare our Fellow for future success and excellence within the foot and ankle community.
  • The fellow will be exposed to a vast array of pathology, including but not limited to trauma, Charcot reconstruction and diabetic limb salvage, complex forefoot and rearfoot pathology, including revision surgery, and complex hind foot and ankle pathology, including tendon and bone reconstruction and a significant amount of revisional surgical procedures. The fellow will have the opportunity to participate fully in cases, skin to skin under the supervision of an attending physician. Our past fellows, on average, logged between 400 and 500 cases (over 2,000 procedures) per year - individually.
  • A research project is required, and research is encouraged within this program. The fellow also has access to the clinics of eight different physicians, as well as multiple hospitals and surgical centers, and is encouraged to attend Fellows conferences and workshops to further his or her education.
