Mission Goals Strengths

It is our goal to provide outstanding patient-centered care and teaching opportunities for medical students, residents and fellows; and to participate in clinical and basic science research. We have attracted top candidates completing very prestigious fellowship programs, further strengthening our department’s expertise.

Message From Leadership

It is my honor to serve as the chairman of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. For many decades, we have had a thriving orthopaedics program of regional and national reputation, and we now rival some of the most established academic medical centers in the country through our quality outcomes. In 2016, Carilion Clinic's Institute for Orthopaedics and Neurosciences opened to further integrate the multispecialty care provided to the patient. This provides enhanced clinical communication between specialties as well as synergies of ideas and capabilities, all to the benefit of the patient. Looking toward the future, we continue to build on new techniques and technologies to further the advanced clinical care we provide.

We are fortunate to have academic-level care through our partnerships with the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine and the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC, and are proud to have nationally and internationally recognized faculty committed to educating the next generation of students. We are poised to grow as a premier destination for musculoskeletal care as well as a regional hub for education, cutting-edge research and future innovations, all with the potential to further improve the overall quality of life for our patients.

Summary
Our residency program at Carilion Clinic is a Podiatric Medicine and Surgery Residency with Reconstructive Rearfoot/Ankle (RRA) credentialing and has received approval from the Council on Podiatric Medical Education.
About the Residency or Fellowship
Virginia Tech Carilion Partnership
In 2010, Carilion Clinic and Virginia Tech partnered to open the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine and Research Institute. This clearly underscores the institutions' dedication to research, training and academic medicine. Our residents are able to utilize the state-of-the-art facilities that this institution provides.
Mission Goals Strengths

The mission of our residency program is to use a structured and directed self-learning model in an academic medical center setting. The program was created to develop outstanding podiatrists who will pursue board certification in foot surgery and reconstructive rear foot/ankle surgery. The residency is supported by a team of experienced podiatric and orthopaedic faculty.

Message From Leadership

Our residency program offers residents comprehensive training that includes bedside and intra-operative education all while treating a diverse patient population with access to multiple facilities within the Carilion system. A notable distinction of our program is that we front-load off-service rotations in the first year to provide an intensive concentration in podiatry and orthopaedics in the second and third years. In addition, our research-based curriculum provides residents the opportunity to submit two case studies and a research project and to present a topic at one of the annual podiatry conferences.

Overview

The Carilion Clinic - Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine (VTCSOM) Adult Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship program dates to the first total knee replacement done in southwest Virginia in 1973 by George Henning, M.D. Since that time, the program expanded with the arrival of Joseph Moskal, M.D. in 1988 as the first fellowship-trained total joint and adult reconstructive surgeon. Under his direction, the Adult Reconstructive Program at Carilion Clinic was modernized to a regional center of excellence, earning certification for Total Joint Replacement in 2007 by The Joint Commission.

Carilion Clinic is a Level I trauma center and a regional tertiary/quaternary referral center for complex adult reconstructive problems, including:

  • Primary and revision total hip and knee replacement surgery
  • Direct anterior approach hip replacement
  • Hip preservation surgery
  • Periprosthetic fractures
  • Computer navigation
  • Deformity correction
  • Periprosthetic joint infections

The surgical volume and case diversity continues to increase due to our large regional catchment area and expansions to the core faculty. The program added John Mann III, M.D. in 2002, Trevor Owen, M.D. in 2012 and Benjamin Coobs, M.D. in 2015. Each attending has specific subspecialty areas of interest covering the entire spectrum of adult reconstruction, hip preservation and deformity correction. All faculty members have been fellowship trained at top-notch programs, including Cleveland Clinic (Dr. Moskal), Insall Scott Kelly Institute (Dr. Mann), Harvard Combined Program (Dr. Owen) and Washington University (Dr. Coobs).

The creation of VTCSOM and what is now the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC was announced in 2007, with the inaugural medical school class beginning in August 2010. The school officially became the ninth college of Virginia Tech on July 1, 2018. This partnership between Virginia Tech and Carilion Clinic provides tremendous opportunities for the educational and research efforts of our fellowship program.

Our training program currently offers two one-year fellowship positions. One position is ACGME accredited and achieved this recognition in 2012. Due to the high clinical volume, increasing faculty and abundant educational opportunities, we expanded the program to include a second non-accredited position in 2017. Both positions are filled through the SF Match and treated with complete parity throughout the fellowship year. Leadership is provided by Dr. Moskal as the program director and Dr. Coobs as the associate program director.

Curriculum
Curriculum

Our 1-year fellowship program offers a broad clinical experience in adult reconstructive surgery, including complex primary cases, revisions, hip preservation surgery, periprosthetic fractures, infections and computer navigation. The schedule is divided into two blocks, organized by faculty with complementary clinical schedules, through which the fellows rotate every two to three months during the year. This allows early and consistent exposure to each faculty member throughout the fellowship, maximizing the educational experience. The typical weekly clinical schedule for each fellow includes four days in the OR, a half-day in the clinic and a half day of protected research time; however this can be adjusted as necessary depending on fellow preferences or needs. For fellows with clinical interest, exposure to orthopaedic trauma and total shoulder cases are available if desired.

The Orthopaedic Surgery Department has dedicated elective OR time on Saturdays and we require the fellows to participate in those OR days if one of the adult reconstruction faculty members is scheduled to operate on a Saturday. Additionally, there may be occasions where weekend coverage is required by the fellows for rounding on the inpatient service or treating urgent cases.  Since we have multiple advanced care providers (PAs and NPs) on the service, there is built-in flexibility to the schedule to accommodate fellow participation in more interesting cases and to offload non-educational patient care needs.  We make every effort to limit weekend patient care responsibilities for each fellow to no more than once per month.

The didactic schedule includes weekly Wednesday-morning conferences from 6:30 to 8 a.m. Our annual educational calendar is built into this block of time, which includes journal club once per month, indications conference once per month, peer review conference every six weeks and topic-focused lectures given by the faculty members. To ensure appropriate review of complex cases, an additional indications conference occurs on one Tuesday evening per month (total of two indications conferences each month). The fellows are responsible for leading journal club, organizing the indications conference and presenting the adult reconstruction section complications at peer review. Additionally, a multidisciplinary total joint council meeting occurs once per month which the fellows are expected to attend.

Dedicated research time is provided, and the fellows are required to complete one publishable research paper during their fellowship year. As time and opportunities allow, participation in additional research projects is encouraged. Resources and support are available to help facilitate project completion.

Participation in regional or national meetings and educational courses is strongly encouraged to enhance the educational experience.  Each year, we encourage our fellows to attend the ICJR Direct Anterior Approach Hip Course, which is directed by Dr. Moskal, and the ICJR Winter Hip and Knee Course. Attending the annual AAHKS meeting is expected and supported, during which our fellowship program hosts our annual dinner to allow faculty members, former fellows and current fellows to reconnect.  Additionally, we ask that the fellows submit their research projects for presentation and attend the regional Virginia Orthopaedic Society meeting which occurs each spring. Participation in additional meetings or courses (i.e., AAOS annual meeting) is allowed based on educational merit or if presenting a research project.
