Interventional Spine Fellowship

Emory Orthopaedics is proud to offer an Interventional Spine Fellowship for PM&R residency graduates interested in furthering their practical and academic spine career. We will be participating in the North American Spine Society (NASS) Consortium of Fellowships.

Fellows will have the opportunity to work with one of the largest academic spine physiatry groups in the country. With over 29,000 outpatient visits and 7,000 procedures performed among all of our spine physiatrists, there is a great mix of degenerative, trauma, and deformity conditions as well as intermittent tumor and infection cases. Outpatient experience will include EMG/NCS, evaluation and treatment in the continuum of acute to chronic spine conditions to develop physical exam skills, imaging interpretation, treatment regimens and overall spine wellness.

An opportunity will also be available to participate in surgical clinics to understand the depth of a complete, interdisciplinary spine center. Procedural experience will include fluoroscopically guided spine interventions including epidural steroid injections, radiofrequency ablation, spinal cord stimulation trials and implantation, vertebral augmentation and ultrasound exposure. Experience with our neurosurgical faculty and orthopedic surgery faculty is readily available and encouraged.

The fellow will be expected to have an independent EMG/NCS clinic as a part of the fellowship and is expected to meet requirements to be eligible for Electrodiagnostic Board Certification.

Clinical research will be expected in addition to participating in resident education.
