What is a fellowship-trained surgeon?
A fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon is a doctor who has completed a minimum of 13 years of education and has completed an additional year of specialty training in a specific field of orthopedic surgery in an accredited fellowship program. There are fellowships in several areas of orthopedics: foot and ankle; hand and wrist; and back, neck and spine. Additionally, orthopedic surgeons may focus on a specific field of orthopedics, such as pediatrics, sports medicine, or trauma.
Our Simi Valley office and Porter Ranch office and Orthopedic Walk-In Clinic will be closed on Friday, October 11 due to the fires. Services at our other locations may be affected as well due to travel conditions; however, we will try to let everyone know if their appointment or surgery is affected. Please stay safe and contact us at (818) 901-6600 if you would like to reschedule your appointment for any reason. We apologize for any inconvenience.x
