During their third year of residency, the resident also rotates through a dedicated spine rotation where the resident is exposed to a suburban and academic spine practice managing patients clinically and operatively.

The residents attend the spine clinics and become comfortable with clinical evaluation and perioperative management of patients with spinal disorders.

In addition, residents learn complex spinal procedures including deformity correction and reconstruction as well as minimally invasive techniques incorporating anatomical preservation approaches.

These operations are often performed in conjunction with the Department of Orthopaedics.
