Orthopedic Centers of Colorado Adult Reconstruction and Hip Preservation Fellowship
Program Dates: August 1 through July 31
Program Director: R. Presley Swann, MD
Fellows of the Orthopedic Centers of Colorado (OCC) Adult Reconstruction and Hip Preservation Fellowship will be able to gain significant hands on experience in hip preservation, total joint arthroplasty, and revision total joint arthroplasty. The average fellow can expect to perform 800 cases, with roughly 20% of those being revisions. The most up-to-date techniques in preservation and arthroplasty are being taught at our program.
As a fellow, typical cases performed are:
- Total Hip, Revision Hip arthroplasty (including Anterior approach THA)
- Partial Knee, Total Knee, Revision Knee arthroplasty
- Robotic assisted surgery for the knee and hip
- Hip Preservation: Hip arthroscopy, Labral repair, Labral reconstruction, Periacetabular Osteotomies (PAOs)
Previous fellows have also mentioned they have enjoyed being a part of a private practice fellowship. The OCC faculty can advise how to build a successful business in private practice if that is your choice after the fellowship program ends.
There is a bi-weekly conference led by the fellow to present case studies, x-rays, and clinical research on relevant topics for upcoming cases.
