Operating Room - Orthopedics
The orthopedic operating rooms at KU hospital are some of the busiest rooms in the city, with a wide variety of cases being performed day and night. Our residents gain valuable experience with invasive monitoring, positioning, evoked potentials, regional techniques for pain control, and intrathecal narcotics, not to mention massive fluid resuscitation. The orthopedic surgeons at KU perform a wide variety of surgeries, including spine surgery, orthopedic oncologic surgery, along with a variety of arthroscopic and reconstructive procedures. It is safe to say that you will not likely come across an orthopedic case after graduation that you have not been exposed to at KU. The experience gained here will be of use no matter what type of practice you have.
