Adult Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship

About the Fellowship

Welcome to the Adult Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship

The Adult Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship at the University of Minnesota Medical Center is a one-year, ACGME-accredited (2612621025) clinical fellowship sponsored by the University of Minnesota Department of Orthopedic Surgery. We will select 2 fellows for the 2024-2025 academic year through the SF Match Program.

The fellowship provides a broad training experience in the diagnosis, management, and surgical treatment of adult reconstructive disorders. Fellows are exposed to clinical problems spanning the breadth of complexity - from minimally invasive procedures, such as hip arthroscopy, to multiply revised joint replacements with substantial structural bone loss. In addition, problems ranging from osteoarthritis to complex revision joint replacements are encountered routinely. The University of Minnesota provides an ideal setting for the fellowship training program.
