INFORMATION ABOUT OUR ROTATIONS

The advanced training year is divided into five rotations each of which lasts 5 weeks and is repeated giving each physician a total of 10 weeks for each rotation. This format also allows for physicians to learn and develop their clinical and surgical skills in order to derive more from each instructor when they return to the rotation. The different rotations allow for not only different areas of focus but also a wide variety of pathology as well as treatment options and techniques.

 

 

OPERATIVE EXPERIENCE
  • The physicians undergo an extensive operative experience in both upper and lower extremity sports injuries.
    • Shoulder Arthroscopy
    • Hip Arthroscopy
    • Reverse Shoulder
    • Knee Arthroscopy
    • Elbow Arthroscopy
    • Elbow Ligament Reconstruction
    • Complex Shoulder Instability Stabilization
  • Physicians should expect to participate in a minimum of 400 knee surgeries and 500 shoulder surgeries as well as numerous hip, elbow, and wrist arthroscopic procedures for direct participation in over 1,000 cases a year per fellow.
  • The flexibility of the instructors also allows for students to follow faculty on other rotations for the opportunity to participate in particularly interesting or unusual cases.
  • Mississippi Sports Medicine also employs surgeon advanced trained Hand, Foot & Ankle, and Joint faculty that are gladly willing to accommodate fellow participation.
 
 
RESEARCH
