The Emory Orthopaedic trauma fellowship at Grady Memorial Hospital is a 12-month fellowship at Georgia’s first and busiest ACS certified level I trauma center, serving metropolitan Atlanta and the surrounding areas. This fellowship will offer a broad experience with pelvic/acetabular fractures, peri-articular fractures, management of poly-traumatized patients, and nonunion/malunion surgery. Grady has approximately 7,000 trauma activations with over 4,000 trauma admission per year. The Orthopaedic trauma service is one of the busiest services in the operating room and works together closely with the General Surgery Trauma, Vascular, Plastics, Critical Care and Neuro-Surgical services.
This fellowship includes 6 trauma fellowship trained faculty, 2 hand fellowship trained faculty, and arthroplasty/sports trained surgeons who care for acute trauma and post traumatic conditions, including multi-ligamentous knee surgeries. There are between 9 and 11 Orthopaedic residents at any given time on service at Grady, and the fellows will be encouraged to teach junior residents during surgical procedures and during the decision-making process regarding poly-traumatized patients and those undergoing non-operative treatment. The teams are also complemented by multiple advanced practice providers and multiple research personnel. The fellows will have time set aside for academic pursuits throughout the year. The Orthopaedic trauma division also has an affiliation with a biomechanics research laboratory, multiple basic science labs, Emory/Rollin’s School of Public Health and Georgia Institute of Technology School of Bioengineering for fellow engagement as their interests dictate.
