  • Description

The resident on the Foot and Ankle service will gain an in-depth exposure to the wide variety of Orthopaedic pathology related to the foot and ankle. The evaluation and diagnosis of both basic and complex foot and ankle conditions are learned in the clinical setting and the non-operative and operative treatment of common foot and ankle pathology is learned. The resident will gain experience in both open and arthroscopic surgical techniques around the foot and ankle while on the rotation. The majority of cases are performed at Emory Orthopaedics & Spine Center. However, the resident will perform larger cases such as total ankle arthroplasty and ankle fusions at the Emory University Orthopaedics & Spine Hospital. There is a weekly didactic session emphasizing the fundamentals of foot and ankle surgery and a monthly journal club where the recent literature of the field is reviewed with the faculty.
