The Adult Reconstructive Orthopedics Fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine focuses primarily on joint replacement of the hip and knee. The fellow will participate in a large volume of primary and revision cases, including state-of-the-art and investigational techniques. The training will stress selection, pre-operative planning, surgical techniques and patient follow-up.
Training occurs in Houston Orthopedic & Spine Hospital (formerly Foundation Surgical Hospital), St. Luke's Medical Center, The Methodist Hospital, the Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and the Institute of Orthopedic Research Laboratories.
A clinical research project is required and participation in a laboratory project is strongly encouraged. This program is accredited by the ACGME.
