The fellowship will have three areas of emphasis: reconstructive foot & ankle surgery, diabetic limb salvage/wound care, and practice management. The fellowship is fluid such that a fellow may elect to focus on a particular area of interest if desired. However the fellow will receive extensive instruction in all three areas. A Certificate of Fellowship Completion in Reconstructive Foot & Ankle Surgery will be awarded at the completion of the fellowship.
  • The foot & ankle fellowship is designed for a higher level of understanding in the diagnosis and treatment of foot & ankle disorders. During their training, fellows will gain experience, expertise and dexterity to use the most current, evidence-based methodology and utilize state-of-the-art technology and tactics. The fellow will receive training in total ankle replacement, minimally invasive surgery, diagnostic msk ultrasound, and orthoplastic surgery.
  • At the completion of their training, the fellows will be highly competent in performing reconstructive foot & ankle surgery. They will also gain experience and judgment to care for the patient at all stages of their clinical course.
