Adult Reconstruction Fellowship
Program director: N. George Sotereanos, MD
Accreditation: Sponsored by Allegheny General Hospital
Program length: 1 year (August 1 - July 31)
Fellows per year: 1
The Allegheny General Hospital Adult Reconstruction Fellowship Program is 12 months long, from August 1 through July 31, and accepts one fellow per year. Under the direction of Nicholas G. Sotereanos, MD, the fellow and two residents work with attending faculty members doing primary and revision arthroplasty. The fellow participates in the weekly joint conferences, Grand Rounds, monthly Morbidity and Mortality conferences, as well as division research activities.
Specialists from Adult Reconstruction and Joint Replacement apply their clinical expertise to quickly establish an accurate diagnosis and develop a plan of care that fits the needs of each patient suffering from joint pain or discomfort. We exhaust every appropriate treatment option before surgery is considered. When joint pain no longer responds to conventional treatment, our nationally renowned surgeons use cutting-edge technology and advanced surgical techniques to eliminate pain and restore motion to a joint, and increase function to the muscles, ligaments and other soft tissue structures that control the joint. Our surgical team has the ability to replace all major joints, including hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, finger, and ankle joints.
After evaluating a patient's condition, our specialists prepare each patient mentally and physically for their procedure and continuously monitor and manage the patient's entire pre- and postsurgical performance and progress. Depending on the patient's condition and needs, our surgeons employ either traditional procedures or utilize the latest minimally invasive techniques – which can result in faster recovery, less bleeding, decreased postoperative pain and reduced scarring. In addition, our surgeons replace artificial joints that have become loose over time.
The deadline for applications is December 1 of the preceding year.
The fellowship stipend is $50,000.
