Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program

Our faculty, comprised of both academic and community orthopedic surgeons, is committed to providing hands-on educational experiences, exposing residents to both the outpatient and operative treatment of patients with musculoskeletal issues. Our residents are focused on approaching care from an osteopathic, patient-centered viewpoint as they consider treatment plans and overall well-being throughout the series of care for each person.
