Advanced Training in Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery

About Our Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery Fellowship Program

Thank you for your interest in the Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery Fellowship at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital. Our faculty consists of six fellowship-trained pediatric orthopedic surgeons and select members of University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, including our oncology, hand, spine, trauma and sports medicine divisions. All directly collaborate for a full complement of exposure to the breadth of pediatric orthopaedic surgery. Our surgeons have a wide range of subspecialty interests, have trained at some of the best programs in North America, and are national leaders in their subspecialties. This brings a diverse range of experiences and philosophies to the program. Our research program is further enhanced by research fellows, research coordinators, and Dr. George Thompson, Professor Emeritus.
