About the Department of Orthopaedics

Welcome to the Department of Orthopaedics at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

As you browse this site, you will quickly become aware that we offer a tremendous educational experience. As one of the ten most NIH/VA funded orthopaedic departments in the country, we pride ourselves on our research, our world-class faculty, hospitals, and on the educational opportunities we provide for our students and residents alike.

Over half of our residents get university affiliations after completing fellowship training, so they become extremely well prepared. Furthermore, on one campus, we have everything from a level one Trauma Center and Pediatric Hospital to the most complex reconstruction orthopaedics, all done and taught by subspecialists. Please take some time to explore our extensive program and please do not hesitate to contact us.

Sincerely,
Edward Akelman, MD
Vincent Zecchino Professor and Chairman
