Resident Spotlight

My favorite rotation has been my trauma rotation at UMC as a PGY-2. It exposed me to the full range of acute orthopedic injuries.

Resident Spotlight

William Shelton

I was attracted to LSU Orthopaedic Residency because this program first, and foremost, trains excellent surgeons. While many programs will claim this, our unique and frequent one-on-one resident to faculty intraoperative interaction prepares us to tackle simple and difficult cases from day 1 of residency.
- William L. Shelton, PGY-4
