This program offers clinical experience in the nonoperative and operative treatment of patients of all ages. Clinical conditions include congenital and developmental disorders of the spine, infections, tumors, degenerative diseases, and trauma of the spine. There will be exposure to adult and pediatric deformities, cervical and lumbar disc arthroplasty, anterior and posterior decompression, fusion, and instrumentation techniques.
The Fellow will be expected to take part in the teaching of residents and seeing spine patients in the clinic. Research productivity is expected. This fellowship participates in the San Francisco Spine match program.
