New England Baptist Spine Fellowship

This program offers extensive experience in the evaluation and management of adult spinal disorders. The fellow will be exposed to a multidisciplinary approach, working with 10 full-time orthopedic spine surgeons, three neurosurgeons, three neuroradiologists, and five physiatrists.

The fellow gains expertise in many facets of spinal surgery with an active operating room experience, including anterior and posterior cervical, thoracic, and lumbar approaches, microscopic, minimally invasive and open techniques, exposure to image guidance systems, instrumentation, decompression, and fusion procedures. The Spine Service performs more than 1,500 procedures per year, including cervical spine disorders, adult deformities, and lumbar degenerative disorders.

Experience in the clinical office setting is an integral part of the program and essential for developing surgical decision-making skills. The fellow will be active in medical student and resident teaching, office clinics, and weekly conferences.

Research Project

With the support of an attending sponsor and the Orthopedic Research Department, each Fellow is expected to prepare at least one research project (clinical or basic science) suitable for presentation at a national meeting and publication in a peer-reviewed journal. Each fellow will present at least one Grand Rounds presentation for the orthopedic department.

Lectures and Conferences

Attendings instruct the Fellow by presenting a spine core curriculum of 30 lectures. Other conferences include weekly Orthopedic Grand Rounds, bimonthly Spine Indications Conference, monthly Journal Club, and monthly M&M Conference. In addition to the spine didactic program the fellows will have access to all other orthopedic specialty teaching offerings within the New England Baptist Hospital.
