Saint Louis University Hospital is an ACS accredited Level 1 trauma center that serves a large portion of the state of Missouri and southern Illinois making it one of the busiest trauma hospitals in the state. Each year we select one fellow, through the SF match, to complete our one year surgical fellowship. From day one the fellow is credentialed as an Instructor in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery and operates as a contributing member of our orthopedic trauma team. Our aim is to create a working environment conducive to learning and aiding in the career transformation from fellow to attending.
At our institution the orthopedic trauma service manages traumatic injuries from the clavicles to toes with no upper extremity services to dilute case volume. We typically run 2-3 operating rooms a day with a dedicated trauma room available daily. Over the last 5 years our fellows have averaged 80-100 pelvic and acetabular cases and with one fellow cases are not shared or double scrubbed. In addition, our fellows average between 500-700 cases per year with a wide variety of periarticular and high energy injuries.
