Meet The Faculty
Mayo Clinic orthopedic surgeons are recognized nationally and internationally for their surgical technical excellence and innovative abilities to solve both simple and difficult orthopedic problems.
By collaborating with scientists in Mayo Clinic research facilities for biomechanics and regenerative medicine, our surgeons develop new solutions for patients that improve healing, speed rehabilitation, and improve outcomes.
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's faculty members are committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge.
Many of our faculty have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their field. You’ll have direct access to Department of Orthopedic Surgery faculty members throughout your training.

From the program director
Welcome to the Orthopedic Surgery Residency. With more than 100 years of experience, we’ve developed an excellent program where you’ll learn how to be a high-quality, efficient orthopedic surgeon.
Beginning with a focus on early education, this program develops a strong foundation to build on, which is seen with our intern curriculum and the unique basic science curriculum.
The mentorship model allows you to learn from experts the skills you need to be efficient in the clinic and graduated independence in the operating room.
Upon completion of the program, our trainees get into top-tier fellowship programs in all subspecialty areas. With more than 900 alumni, you’ll have ample opportunities for job networking.
