About Us

The University of Alberta's Division of Orthopaedic Surgery has 42 Surgeons and 21 Residents.
The faculty are highly qualified with subspecialized fellowship training in all areas of orthopaedic surgery:
  • Spinal disorders including deformity correction 
  • Primary and revision total joint arthroplasty
  • Complex fracture care
  • Arthroscopy/knee and shoulder reconstruction
  • Athletic injuries
  • Pediatric disorders
  • Foot and ankle disorders
  • Wrist and elbow disorders
  • Musculoskeletal oncology
Clinical and basic-science research is ongoing in all these areas and is supported by a well focused group of collaborative researchers.

Medical students complete a 7-week block on MSK disorders in second year and a 2-week clinical rotation in fourth year.  Elective students are always welcome.

The five year Residency Training Program encourages the development of a well trained Orthopaedic Surgeon who has the skills and knowledge to enter practice upon graduation. Opportunities are available for postgraduate research degrees.

Fellowship training programs are offered in Spine, Trauma, Arthroplasty, and Arthroscopy.
