Department of Orthopaedics
The Department of Orthopaedics at Rutgers, New Jersey Medical School is staffed by 17
highly trained clinical and basic science faculty members. The many activities of our faculty are based on our abiding desire to help
our patients, who suffer from a wide variety of bone and joint conditions, through
progressive research and educational programs and ultimately through state-of-
the-art orthopaedic care.
The clinical program focuses on expert, comprehensive patient care and encompasses
all orthopaedic subspecialties: trauma; bone and joint conditions in children;
foot and ankle conditions and injuries; hand and microvascular surgery; musculoskeletal
oncology and limb salvage; spine injuries and conditions; sports medicine and
arthroscopy; total joint replacement and adult reconstruction.The clinical practices
of the faculty are organized through the Department of Orthopaedics, North Jersey Orthopaedics Institute.
The Institute has offices at the Cancer Center (205 South Orange Avenue) on the Newark
campus and in the Medical Arts Center of Overlook Hospital in Summit. The faculty
also sees patients through the Orthopaedics Clinic at University Hospital in
All clinical and basic science faculty are strongly committed to patient-based
research, through the Orthopaedic Clinical Research Center, and basic science
research carried out in the orthopaedic research laboratories. Both are housed
in the Medical Science Building (MSB) on the Newark campus. Clinical and basic
science research efforts are also integrated with those of other academic institutions
within New Jersey.
As part of their scholastic efforts, faculty members are continuously involved
in diverse educational programs directed at medical students, post-graduate
students at the Masters and PhD levels, and orthopaedic residents. Many of
our faculty act as speakers, moderators and organizers of scientific meetings
and symposia locally, nationally and overseas.
