About the Program
The Adult Reconstructive Orthopedic Surgery Fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine is ACGME accredited and focuses on joint replacement of the hip and knee. Our program trains fellows to be well prepared to enter into academic or private practice. The fellow will participate in a large volume of primary and revision cases, including state-of-the-art and robotic techniques. The training will stress patient selection, pre-operative planning, surgical techniques, patient follow-up, and research.
Our program is diverse and unique. The program is located in the heart of Houston in the Texas Medical Center, the largest health science complex in the world. Baylor has affiliations with several highly respected hospitals as well as with leading universities, NASA and other institutions which allows unparalleled access to clinical and research resources.
Our fellows work in two primary clinical settings within the medical center. They are: Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center, a large academically focused community hospital, and the Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center, one of the largest and busiest VA hospital's in the entire country. The VA is a regional referral center for complex and revision arthroplasties. Our faculty also includes surgeons from the Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, a large physician run organization and ACO.
