Pediatric Orthopedics: Is One Fellowship Enough?

Abstract

Dual-fellowship–trained surgeons specializing in both pediatric and sport medicine are treating an increasing number of pediatric orthopedic injuries, making pediatric orthopedic sports medicine a potential new emerging subspecialty. With fellowship training now being the norm rather than the exception across orthopedics, it is possible that dual-fellowship training may become a prerequisite for treatment of pediatric sports medicine patients. This may impact the practices of surgeons trained in either pediatric or sports medicine alone. As the trend toward dual-fellowship training is likely to continue, future studies are needed to characterize the impact it has on patient care and training patterns.
