The Stanford University Department of Orthopaedic Surgery is dedicated to providing excellent patient care and outstanding education for students, residents and fellows in the fields of orthopaedic surgery and musculoskeletal medicine. We are committed to advancing knowledge related to the care of conditions of the musculoskeletal system through basic science and clinical research.

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery focuses on patient care in each of these orthopaedic subspecialties: adult reconstruction and joint replacement, sports medicine, spine surgery, surgery of the hand and wrist, surgery of the shoulder and elbow, surgery of the foot and ankle, musculoskeletal tumor surgery, orthopaedic trauma Surgery, pediatric orthopaedics, and physical medicine and rehabilitation.

The faculty are recognized as excellent clinicians, providing care for the most difficult problems in orthopaedic surgery. In addition, they are internationally known through their contributions to literature and visiting professorships, as well as their numerous awards and grants.

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery has a national and international presence in orthopaedic research that is based on a broad representation of the varied subspecialties within this surgical field for treatment of problems in infants, adolescents, middle-aged and older individuals. The goal of the Orthopaedic Research Program is to develop fundamental knowledge to advance the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and diseases. Our faculty members are dedicated to advancing the field with a focus on “bench to bedside” innovations through sponsored research. The mentoring and development of Stanford residents as potential clinical investigators widens this fundamental mission of the department.

We look forward to being able to provide enhanced orthopaedic care for our patients and to continue contributing to the global orthopaedic surgery knowledge base.
