An Adult Hip and Knee Reconstruction conference is held every Tuesday morning to discuss processes and techniques, followed by a Surgical Indications Conference to discuss upcoming cases.


Each fellow will be expected to complete one adult reconstruction project during the year worthy enough of publishing in a peer-reviewed journal or presented at a regional or national meeting.
