The orthopaedic surgery education at the Medical College of Wisconsin has a long and successful tradition. Our goal is to provide a well-monitored academic environment for achieving excellence in the diagnostic, cognitive, therapeutic, and technical skills essential in the treatment of congenital, acquired, traumatic, infectious, and degenerative diseases and conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system.
The orthopaedic program places a strong emphasis on mentoring. The resident will be exposed to the entire spectrum of orthopaedic specialties, and participate in the practice of both general and sub-specialized orthopaedics in both academic and private practice settings.
Graded responsibility is present throughout the training years providing residents with opportunities for decision making, clinical care, and surgical experience. These broad experiences prepare our residents for outstanding careers in either academics or private practice orthopaedics.
Specialty services at Froedtert Hospital include spine, hand and upper extremity, sports, musculoskeletal oncology, total joint reconstruction, foot and ankle, and musculoskeletal trauma. Specialty services at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin include myelo-meningocele, cerebral palsy, juvenile amputee, and sports medicine.
Research opportunities include projects in the orthopaedic department's laboratories of biomechanics, biomaterials and histopathology, biochemistry, gait and motion analysis, and microsurgery and laser, as well as interdepartmental research in rheumatology, and biochemistry.
