Foot and Ankle Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital

Our Fellowship Program takes one fellow a year, so you get plenty of individualized attention, both in the diagnosis and treatment arenas and in basic and clinical research. Our urban location – situated at the crossroads of some of the wealthiest and poorest New Yorkers – guarantees a breadth of learning opportunities. Our program delves into the diagnosis and management of post-traumatic, degenerative, and metabolic disorders of the foot and ankle. By the end of the fellowship, you will be able to diagnose and formulate treatment plans for a wide range of diseases and deformities of the lower extremity.


Our fellows learn about both surgical and non-surgical management of degenerative and inflammatory arthritides, diabetic foot deformities, and congenital abnormalities. You are exposed to joint replacement of the ankle, fracture fixation, correction of severe forefoot, hindfoot and ankle deformities using both internal and external fixation, as well as management of these deformities using orthotic and prosthetic devices.

In addition, we expect our fellows to participate in basic science and clinical research projects and publish the results of your research.
