  • Description

The Sports Medicine rotation provides the resident with an in-depth exposure to the wide array of musculoskeletal pathology encountered by the sports medicine surgeon. This resident is intimately involved in the clinical work-up and both operative and non-operative treatment of pathology related to the shoulder, hip, knee and ankle in the athlete. The resident is an active participant in both open and arthroscopic procedures and will master the basic principles of arthroscopy  during this rotation. The majority of the operative and clinical experience occurs at the Emory Orthopaedics & Spine Center.  However, the resident may also be involved in complex cases at Grady Memorial Hospital or Emory Johns Creek Hospital. Weekly didactic sessions are held in conjunction with all of the Sports faculty and staff.
