Welcome to Our Program

Welcome to the Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program at Maimonides Medical Center. The faculty members of the Orthopedic Surgery Residency Program are committed to the education of residents with the goal of preparing them to be well-qualified, independent specialists in orthopedics. Our role as educators is to instill residents with those traits which are essential to success, including honesty, integrity, objectivity, self-motivation, curiosity and a sense of responsibility. To this end, we strive to graduate residents who not only are expert surgeons, but who are capable of becoming leaders in the field. This is evidenced by the large percentage of our residents who pursue academic careers. 

Excellence in patient care is of utmost importance and inseparable from the resident educational experience. The wide variety of cases provided by the large and diverse population we serve allows for an extensive experience in all of the orthopedic specialties.  The faculty members, all experts in their field and specialty trained, offer an experience with the appropriate balance of clinical and academic education. They foster an educational environment that allows for both professional and personal growth.
