The Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology of Kantonsspital St.Gallen is an accredited Center for the education of surgeons in the field of Orthopaedics and Traumatology in all
segments of the musculoskeletal system.

Goals and Characteristics of Shoulder and Elbow Fellowship

This fellowship offers an extensive experience in the surgical and nonsurgical management of disorders of shoulder and elbow under the supervision of two full-time faculty members. The Shoulder and Elbow Service manages in excess of 4’000 outpatient visits per year and performs more than 600 surgical cases a year. This clinical volume guarantees exposures to a wide variety of traumatic, degenerative and athletic injuries. The fellowship experience includes training in the most advanced arthroscopic and open reconstructive surgeries of shoulder and elbow and especially also in shoulder and elbow arthroplasty.

Research Opportunities

Research, both clinical and biomechanical, is an integral part of the fellowship experience. The research is conducted under the direction of Dr. med. Vilijam Zdravkovic. The fellows also have the opportunities to do research work in our biomechanical lab or in our gait/motion analysis lab.

Requirements

Candidates must be eligible for a medical license prior to training.
