  • This fellowship is based out of a pediatric orthopaedic group that performs approximately 450 foot and ankle surgical cases per annum. The fellow is expected to master the diagnosis and surgical treatment of pediatric forefoot, rearfoot and ankle pathology including metadductus, bunions, multiplane deformities, flatfoot, cavus foot, gait abnormalities, neuromuscular conditions, clubfoot, trauma, etc. The fellowship will have a concentration in correction of limb deformities with gradual correction via external fixation. Access to EOS scan technology.
  • The fellow will be exposed to surgical and office billing and coding. Practice management content will be reviewed with the fellow in a lecture format.
