Orthopaedic Hand and Upper Extremity Fellowship

Home: Welcome

About Us

The Hand & Upper Extremity Fellowship at  the Orlando Health Jewett Orthopedic Institute is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).  Although we are a recently established hand fellowship (approved by the ACGME in 2021), our dedication and service to exceptional patient care, as well as our enthusiasm for training and education involving the upper extremity, has been ongoing for over 60 years through our orthopaedic surgery residency program.  The goal of this fellowship is to instruct and mentor future hand and upper extremity surgeons  through a high volume and hands-on experience, with the personal and professional growth of our trainees at the center of this mission.  Some of the highlights of our fellowship are outlined below.

Our hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder surgeons perform over 10,000 surgeries per year as a group, with a wide variety of  both traumatic and elective cases ranging from congenital hand to brachial plexus to shoulder arthroplasty. 


Our faculty are actively involved in research including various prospective and retrospective studies which focus on ailments and injuries of the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder, and have also authored and edited numerous book chapters. 

Educational Opportunities

While training will primarily be focused on an autonomous "hands on" experience within a mentorship model, there are several other educational opportunites available for our hand & upper extremity fellows. These include didactic conferences, journal clubs, microsurgical training and courses, a bioskills lab with cadaver dissection, and both fellowship and industry sponsored courses and conferences.
