Limb Reconstruction Fellowship Program
The Limb Reconstruction Fellowship Program of the ICLL provides postgraduate medical education in a unique orthopedic surgical subspecialty that includes the in-depth study, prevention, and treatment of limb length discrepancies, nonunions, malunions, and congenital and posttraumatic limb deformities by medical, physical, and surgical methods. Specifically, the Program is based on but not limited to techniques derived from the science of distraction osteogenesis. Methodologies used in the Program are not limited to any specific device or apparatus but rather encompass the full gamut of orthopedic fixation materials, including plates, intramedullary rods, and monolateral and circular fixators in the study and subsequent treatment and correction of these deformities. Fellowship opportunities are typically granted for periods of 6 months to 2 years.
The Limb Reconstruction Fellowship Program is centered at the Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore. The Institute provides substantial support resources for this Program, including but not limited to outpatient, surgical, inpatient, imaging, laboratory, rehabilitation, and research resources. Operating rooms are provided, with equipment and staff to support the adult and pediatric reconstructive activities of this Fellowship Program. Research activities may take place at the Institute.
