About the Fellowship:

This is a 12 month fellowship offered at the only free-standing Children’s Hospital in Louisiana.  The fellowship is designed to prepare our fellows for a career in pediatric orthopaedic surgery in either an academic or private setting.

Time is spent in both clinic and the operating room with a goal to provide a comprehensive pediatric orthopaedic surgery education.  During the fellowship year, you will work with our 5 fellowship trained pediatric orthopaedic surgeons and will be exposed to all areas of pediatric orthopaedics including:

  • spinal deformity
  • clubfeet
  • trauma
  • hip disorders
  • complex foot disorders
  • sports medicine/arthroscopy
  • cerebral palsy
  • limb deformity
  • tumor

Research opportunities are available at both Children’s Hospital as well as LSUHSC.  The fellow has dedicated research time and is expected to complete one project during the fellowship year.  Teaching opportunities are available as we have residents from 5 residency programs rotate through CHNOLA.

This Fellowship is ACGME accredited.
