Program Overview

The South Pointe Orthopedic Surgery residency program offers a unique opportunity for residents to grow and master this surgical field. Throughout the 5 year program duration, the resident is exposed to a wide breadth and scope of surgical cases the fully encompasses the field of orthopedic surgery. With the Cleveland Clinic as our sponsoring institution, the resident will have the opportunity to obtain competency in managing complex orthopedic issues in conjunction with leading edge orthopedic treatment modalities.

The program is based at Cleveland Clinic South Pointe Hospital. This community-based hospital, part of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation integrated health care system, is equipped with a state-of-the-art surgery center, 24-bed ICU, and emergency department. The hospital has a physical and virtual library that allows residents to grow their knowledge through various articles, textbooks, and other resources. The hospital sponsors several other residency programs, emphasizing its commitment to medical education and the advancement of the future of healthcare.

While South Pointe hospital is our base institution, educational opportunities exist at other hospitals within the Cleveland Clinic system on the east side of Cleveland. Hillcrest Hospital is a Level II trauma center, where our residents have responsibilities in surgery, adult emergency department consults, pediatric emergency department consults and floor consults. Additional rotations at Hillcrest include spine surgery.   Several of our rotations occur at Cleveland Clinic Main Campus including adult reconstruction, pediatrics, hand, and musculoskeletal oncology. For several of our rotations, we collegially work alongside the Orthopedic Surgery at Cleveland Clinic main campus residents and fellows. This gives the opportunity to further grow in our orthopedic knowledge with joint educational opportunities. Please see our curriculum tab (  for more information about our various rotations.

We are fortunate to have a close family of residents and attendings at South Pointe Orthopedic Surgery. Being a tight-knit group of 15 residents allows us to work efficiently as a team to fulfill our clinical duties and continue to expand our medical knowledge and surgical skills.
