During this one-year position, the fellow will develop an in-depth understanding of the pathophysiologic, clinical, radiographic, and musculoskeletal evaluation of foot and ankle deformities. This fellow will learn the principles and techniques required for the management of musculoskeletal foot and ankle deformities, including nonoperative treatment, preoperative planning and assessment, surgical decision making, and postoperative management and rehabilitation.
Inpatient and outpatient responsibilities will be assigned. The fellow will master the surgical skills necessary to perform accurate foot and ankle deformity correction procedures. The procedures that the fellow will participate in include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Application and removal of internal and external fixation
- Nerve decompressions
- Malunion and nonunion repair
- Reduction of fractures
- Bone grafting
- Revision surgery
The fellow will be supervised directly by Dr. Lamm while performing all foot and ankle surgical procedures. The surgical cases will be reviewed every two months, and goals will be set to improve the fellow’s techniques.
The academic component of the fellowship emphasizes a scholarly approach to clinical problem solving, analysis of foot and ankle deformity correction, and research. The fellow will attend the Baltimore Limb Deformity Course and will participate in research meetings, surgical teaching conferences, and journal club meetings. The fellow will also complete a research project and will submit this research to the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons (ACFAS) to be considered for presentation at the annual ACFAS meeting.
