Our outpatient facility at Clinton Crossings brings together a full-range of orthopaedic, rehabilitation, and imaging specialists and offers patients unparalleled convenience.
Strong Memorial Hospital
This institution is the parent and flagship hospital for the residency program. It is staffed by 33 full-time clinical Orthopaedics faculty organized into 13 divisions. All of the divisions are very active and provide residents a balanced, broad experience in all areas of orthopaedics. That includes experience in adult reconstruction, athletic medicine, foot/ankle, general orthopaedics, hand, oncology, pediatric orthopaedics, spine, trauma, and research. Strong emphasizes basic science and clinical research. The majority of the basic science research is in cellular and molecular biology. There is a major emphasis on Orthopaedics teaching, with one or two conferences held each day, Monday through Friday.
At Highland Hospital, a University of Rochester-affiliated hospital, we have a small number of orthopaedic attendings present. This allows the resident to work very closely with the attending staff on a one-to-one basis. Emphasis is placed on pre-operative, intra-operative and post-operative care. Strong Memorial Hospital attendings now operate at Highland Hospital as well. The emphasis is on general orthopaedics, geriatric fractures, and joint replacement, in a highly efficient community hospital type of setting.
There is a program in place to allow residents to spend time with individual attendings in their private office settings. This will further enhance the resident’s experience regarding pre-operative decision-making. It will also broaden a resident's experiences in non--operative orthopaedics. Approximately half the attendings on the Highland staff are trained outside the Rochester area. That brings a broad, outside-Rochester experience and approach to the residency training program.
