Our Fellowship
Mission
The mission of the Fellowship Program is to instill the combination of surgical expertise and business experience and in an empowering, entrepreneurial and ethical setting. Fellows are trained and empowered to perform safer, simpler, and faster surgeries, benefitting both surgeon and patient alike.
Fellowship Program
The LESS Institute Spine Fellowship program offers fellows an opportunity to gain an extensive range of comprehensive training in spine treatment.
Les Surgeons
Each LES surgeon is specialty-trained in outpatient surgery and collectively offer a wide range of subspecialty expertise including both adult and adolescent conditions affecting the spine.
Building a foundation
This one-year fellowship program is geared toward the orthopaedic surgeon who is interested in building a foundation for outpatient treatment, inpatient care, and clinical research.
Our Vision
The Risk & The Solution
If fellowship programs do not prepare their graduates for the trend toward outpatient surgery that improves patient care, the hospitals power is removed to stifle fellows employment and business development options by closing their doors and turning their backs on a free market system.
With over 1,000 outpatient cases per year, the LESS institute focuses on a wide range Less Exposure Surgery and traditional treatments, including cervical and lumbar fusion. Fellows are exposed to the highest standard of patient care as well as new areas of diagnosis and tailored treatment.
Our Model
During the year-long program, fellows develop in-depth experience in the surgical and nonsurgical management of orthopedic disorders and treatment plans of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. Each fellow works closely with our LESS surgeons to, assist in diagnosis, treat patients, and management of a multitude of conditions affecting the spine.
