Foot and Ankle Surgery

Program Overview

This one-year fellowship program offers exposure to a broad spectrum of orthopaedic foot and ankle disorders at a busy Level I academic trauma center. The curriculum provides a well-rounded experience of managing operative and non-operative care to orthopaedic foot and ankle patients.
