Operative Experience

We are committed to providing hands-on experience to our residents, and operative responsibilities are awarded progressively as ability develops. Residents work side by side with faculty members to provide excellent care for patients and to ensure a varied and thorough educational experience. Patient case volume is high and residents are involved in all clinical activities including preoperative evaluation, surgery, post-operative care and follow-up.
