Orthopaedic Surgery

Our clinical faculty is comprised of members from two orthopedic groups, CMC and OrthoCarolina.

The 11 academically focused CMC faculty members are complemented by 25 faculty members from OrthoCarolina, our region's largest orthopedic surgery practice. Our residency provides high volume exposure in all subspecialty areas of orthopedics, with two to five fellowship-trained faculty members in each area.

Our curriculum is built around the six core competencies, with special emphasis on professionalism and communication skills. We strive to provide residents the optimal environment for learning the art and science of orthopedic surgery, and hope to inspire them to become leaders in our profession. We are excited about your interest in our department, and hope you will join us as we work to "do the right thing" for our patients, residents, community and profession.
