Welcome to the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery.
We invite you to browse our web site and see what great things are happening here. Within our Department, we have faculty members who are recognized leaders in orthopaedic surgery. Dr. Steve Glassman is the President of the Scoliosis Research Society. Dr. David Seligson is the President of the Gerhard Küntscher Society. Dr. Madhu Yakkanti is the Vice-President of the Kentucky Orthopaedic Society. I serve on the Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Review Committee (RRC) and as President of the Mid-America Orthopaedic Association. Our newest faculty member, Dr. John Riehl, an orthopaedic
traumatologist, received our Department’s
Faculty Teaching Award this year.
Our Department continues to make
tremendous progress. We have revised
our educational curriculum so that it is
organized by subspecialty, created a
diversity committee, added surgical skills
modules, enhanced our monthly PGY-1
conference series, and strengthened our
fellowships in orthopaedic traumatology, adult reconstruction, and spine surgery. Our graduates go on to coveted fellowships and are highly recruited.
From the Department’s modest beginnings at Kosair Crippled Children’s Hospital nearly 84 years ago, we are on our way to a bright future with multiple divisions and endowed Chairs, a top ten residency training program, federal research funding, and regional outreach. We invite you to be part of what’s happening here.
