Many of our physicians are involved in the development of new techniques and treatments to remain on the cutting edge of orthopedic medicine. This includes work with the National Institute of Health as well as some of the world’s leading medical technology companies. In addition, SMOG has developed a nationally recognized fellowship program that annually trains two to three orthopedic surgeons from around the country in the most advanced techniques of patient care for all aspects of sports medicine.
