ADULT RECONSTRUCTION FELLOWSHIP

 

 

EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES
  • The participants are exposed to all areas of Total Joint Replacement Surgical procedural practice including:
    • Total Knee Arthroplasty (replacement)
    • Total Hip Arthroplasty (replacement)
    • Partial Knee Replacement (UNI)
    • Outpatient Total Joint Replacement
  • We have a monthly conference to discuss a topic of interest based on our curriculum and hold regular journal clubs.
  • MSMOC has a cadaver lab in the facility that is assessable during your training and you will have a knee anatomy cadaver lab and a hip anatomy cadaver lab conducted in conjunction with the faculty.
    •    Our lab is managed on-site by our Cadaver Lab Manager, Keith Comish, PTA, ATC.
  • Each physician is provided with multiple educational travel opportunities and this is paid for by the advanced training program.
  • Each participant typically attends 2-3 events throughout the year to include the AAHKS Annual Fall Meeting and Spring Meeting, the AAOS Annual Meeting, and industry-sponsored educational courses. This typically includes a visit to Warsaw, Indiana to visit a major orthopaedic implant manufacturer and a training-level industry course.
    •    The events you participate in during the year are determined based on the physician’s interests.
 
OPERATIVE EXPERIENCE

We provide the participants with a high volume of cases but also a large variety of cases. This includes primary arthroplasty surgery to include partial knee replacement along with total hip and knee arthroplasty.

 

We also have a diverse revision population. You will perform anterior, anterolateral, and posterior total hip replacements during your year with us. You will utilize traditional instrumentation, computer navigation, and accelerometer technology to perform partial and total knee replacement and be exposed to measured resection and gap balancing techniques.

 

You will also see a diverse mix of revision arthroplasty. This will include massive acetabular reconstructions with custom tri-flange devices and acetabular augmentation, complex femoral reconstructions with proximal femoral replacement and revision femoral implantation. We also frequently perform complex revision knee arthroplasty to include augmentation for bone loss, use of constraint and hinged devices. You will be well trained in the treatment of geriatric trauma to include revision and fixation of periprosthetic acetabulum and femur fractures along with hip fracture management with arthroplasty and fixation.

 

 

HOSPITAL SETTINGS

You will operate in multiple hospital settings to include a large volume inpatient community hospital, ambulatory surgical center, and an academic inpatient hospital. This will give you a broad exposure to all of the different settings in which arthroplasty is currently performed across the United States.

 

 

RESEARCH

Both Advanced Training Programs are offered a team of researchers, including a Director of Research and 2 Research Coordinators that are well versed in our procedures, techniques, and areas of study. This team is here to assist our physicians through the research process by assisting with the finding of journal articles, article formatting, and submission.

 

Through the Research Department, our participants have access to CareSense, SOS, and all of our Faculty Physicians’ case logs by CPT code, as well as our on-site Orthopaedic Surgical Library.

 

 

WHY CHOOSE MS SPORTS MEDICINE & ORTHOPAEDIC CENTER
  • Our unique partnership with Tulane University College of Sports Medicine, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, and University of Mississippi Medical Center allows an unmatched opportunity to be exposed to both Private Clinical Practice and Academic Institution Medical Practice Models during the Advanced Training Program.
  • Due to our Private Practice Partnership setting and high volume of surgical cases we perform, we offer an opportunity that will maximize each Fellow’s clinical and surgical training experiences.
 
BENEFITS
  • Base Salary – $57,500
  • Paid Call Coverage on top of base salary
  • $500/night $1000/weekend
  • Professional Liability Insurance
  • Family Health Insurance Coverage

CALL

You will take paid calls at a tertiary community hospital. This is in conjunction with the sports fellowship and is typically three to five calls a month. It is rare to have to come into the hospital during a weekday night and typically only happens two to three times per year. The majority of call entails answering phones calls and triaging patients over the phone. There typically is a surgery that needs to be performed on weekend call. There is also the opportunity to cover football games. This is not mandatory for the arthroplasty fellows; you will be paid to cover football games if you wish to do this.
