This fellowship focuses on lower extremity reconstruction and is under the direct supervision of Drs. David Backstein, Allan E. Gross, Paul Kuzyk and Oleg Safir. Lower extremity reconstruction includes the following - cemented and uncemented hip and knee replacement; revision arthroplasty of the hip and the knee with an emphasis on restoration of bone stock. In addition considerable experience will be gained in the use of osteotomies about the knee, and the use of fresh osteochondral allografts for post-traumatic defects particularly around the knee.

Approximately two to three days a week will be spent in the operating room, one day in the ambulatory care setting, and one day doing clinical research. It is expected that the clinical research will lead to at least one scientific presentation, and one publication.

This fellowship focuses on tertiary care surgery with an emphasis on revision arthroplasty of the hip and the knee. For this reason this fellowship is more appropriate for those individuals who are seeking an academic career. The fellowship is for a minimum of one year and the maximum of two years.
