Fellows will encounter a broad range of foot and ankle pathology, with a focus on sports, ankle replacement, arthroscopy, and complex hindfoot and forefoot reconstruction. Our fellowship places heavy emphasis on the development of the fellow's surgical skills. This is accomplished by providing fellows an appropriate level of autonomy in an intensive hands-on clinical and surgical environment. Individually, each fellow will have the opportunity to participate in approximately 700 surgical cases comprising over 2,000 procedures. This fellowship offers an in-depth experience within the business aspects of surgery including office management, product development, and operational efficiency. A unique 1-year experience designed to prepare the highly skilled foot and ankle surgeon for a changing healthcare environment. The OFA fellowship bond is strong. All graduating fellows become lifelong members of the OFA family and are included in educational endeavors, publication projects, product development opportunities, and regular reunion meetings.
"To all of us at OFAC, the fellowship is not just one additional year of training, but rather an invitation to become a member of our uniquely diverse and highly specialized family of innovative and dedicated surgeons."
