Hand and Elbow Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital

Our Hand and Elbow Fellowship is dedicated to educating our fellows. Our flexible schedule is designed to optimize your experience in the broadest range of problems and procedures, ranging from pediatric elbow arthroscopy to microvascular free tissue transfer.

Research and publication are also important components of the training program, with the goal of graduating fellows with sufficient experience, judgment, and skills to successfully treat the broadest spectrum of problems in an academic or private practice environment. We accept one fellow each year.


You will be able to experience a high concentration of elbow and wrist disorders through three primary rotations. The first rotation emphasizes plastic reconstruction of soft tissues and peripheral nerves with substantial clinical experience in both pedicle and microvascular free flaps. The second offers a wide variety of traumatic hand and upper extremity treatments including replantation surgery. Throughout the fellowship program, you gain extensive experience in clinical decision making, surgical skills, and scientific investigation, taking on increasing responsibility.
