The Orthopaedic Spine Fellows at Brigham and Women’s Hospital participate in a combined campus fellowship with the Massachusetts General Hospital. The fellowship is directed by Dr. Christopher M. Bono, MD, Chief of the Orthopaedic Spine Service at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The fellowship involves all aspects of adult spinal surgery. This includes treatment of degenerative, deformity, trauma, neoplastic, and inflammatory/ infectious disorders of the spine. There is a positive balance between operative experience as well as inpatient and outpatient clinical exposure. The fellows are exposed to the fundamental principles and application of spinal research. There is a strong focus on utilization of evidence-based medicine in treatment decisions. The fellows have the opportunity to perform original research and publish high quality peer-reviewed articles under the direction of the fellowship faculty. The fellows are expected to be intimately involved with resident and medical student education, as well as organizing and delivering a series of lectures in adherence to a comprehensive curriculum. At both campuses, the Spine Fellows interact with the Neurosurgical Service to further broaden their clinical experience.
