Orthopaedic Surgery

The UCSF Fresno Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program received initial accreditation from the ACGME Orthopaedic Residency Review Committee in June of 2009 and our inaugural class began in June 2010. This new residency program brings another dimension to our training programs already in place at UCSF Fresno. 

Our faculty is subspecialty trained in all areas of orthopaedics including pediatric orthopaedics, spine, adult reconstruction, trauma, sports medicine, foot/ankle, orthopaedic oncology and hand/microvascular surgery. In addition, a large volume of general orthopaedic surgery cases are performed by many faculty members. From day one to completion of the residency, the residents will have one-on-one faculty mentoring and a wealth of clinical opportunities. There are also numerous clinical research opportunities and a support staff to facilitate these research projects. The residents obtain tremendous hands-on experience providing care to patients ranging in age from pediatric through geriatric for congenital, acquired and traumatic conditions. 

We graduate three chief residents each year. Our graduates will function as practitioners of orthopaedic surgery at the high level of performance expected of board certified specialists.
