Fellowship details

Extensive facilities

The fellowship program is based at a facility with an extensive clinical data repository, an implant retrieval laboratory, an RSA laboratory, a surgical training suite, and access to state-of-the-art implant wear simulation and prototyping facilities through collaboration with the Orthopedic Innovation Centre.

Modern techniques

The Arthroplasty Fellowship is a one-year program with two positions available to trainees each year. During the fellowship, trainees will work with the Concordia Joint Replacement Group (CJRG), a group of four fellowship-trained arthroplasty surgeons who perform a total of approximately 1,400 primary and revision hip and knee replacements per year. The CJRG employs modern techniques for primary hip and knee replacement surgery, including cemented and uncemented implants, computer navigation, robotic assistance, and unicondylar arthroplasty.
