The Orthoplastics and Limb Salvage Surgery Fellowship is a non-accredited training program designed to provide advanced training to fellows at the PGY-6 level or higher. The fellow will train in extremity reconstructive surgery, including trauma, and receive additional advanced training in hand transplantation, microsurgical reconstruction of upper and lower extremities in adults and children, and brachial plexus surgery. The fellowship focuses on both upper and lower limb extremity and allow the fellow and the institution to design a more advanced clinical and research experience in managing extremity reconstruction and salvage. The fellow will have shared clinical responsibilities with rotating orthopaedic and plastic surgery residents and fellows. The fellow will also become an integral member of the Hand Transplantation Service. The Orthoplastics and Limb Salvage Surgery fellow is expected to participate in research, resulting in at least one publication or formal presentation alongside our faculty members who are heavily involved in clinical and basic research. The University of Pennsylvania Health System provides cadavers in the Penn Human Tissue Lab and an extensive orthopaedic research laboratory for anatomy, microsurgery and biomechanics projects. During the fellowship, two weeks will be set aside to allow the fellow time to attend two major conferences that will enhance their learning in the field.
