Keeping the Promise of Hoag Orthopedics

The Hoag Orthopedics clinical team has established a first-class fellowship, education and research program.  The surgical fellowships in sports medicine, joint replacement and arthritis, and spine surgery are becoming highly sought after programs.  In fact, Hoag Orthopedics is becoming recognized as one of the elite post-residency orthopedic training centers across the country.  Hoag’s renowned orthopedic surgeons are passionate about sharing knowledge, advancing their specialty through research and innovation and giving back. Philanthropy will make all the difference.

Big Ideas

We are actively involved in medical research and support multiple projects teamed with industry leaders and innovators to develop new orthopedic treatment modalities. Educating fellows and training the next generation of skilled surgeons is the hallmark of a leader in care.

  • Physician Visitors Programs - Bringing physicians to Hoag to learn from our techniques as well as sending our physicians to other highly reputable institutes to bring back best practices.

  • International Orthopedic Symposium - This symposium provides the community with the unique opportunity to bring a world renowned speaker who presents live demonstrations on global surgical trends for orthopedic surgeons across California to engage in cutting-edge education.

  • Orthopedic Nursing Symposium - This symposium provides continuing education for orthopedic nurses, nursing assistants, physical therapists, peri-operative staff, rehabilitation staff and clinicians working on the orthopedic setting.

Empowering You

The Hoag Promise Campaign invests in the latest advances to treat musculoskeletal conditions and diseases through excellence in care, clinical innovation, research and advocacy.

  • Sports Medicine Program - A group of voluntary orthopedic surgeons work with a number of local athletic event sponsors and high schools providing sports medicine services on the sidelines. Young athletes are quickly diagnosed and treated with state-of-the-art surgical techniques for injuries of the shoulder, elbow, knee and ankle.

  • Nurse Navigators - The orthopedic nurse navigator acts as a central point of contact for the patient and family.  This specialist has deep knowledge of orthopedic issues, navigating the patient through every step of the continuum or care, from diagnosis through surgery, recovery and two-year post care to track recovery rates and quality of life after procedures.

Extraordinary Leaders

Hoag Orthopedics trains orthopedic students and residents seeking additional training in orthopedic surgery in three core areas: total joints, spine and sports medicine.  The goal is to train and mentor clinical and research fellows.

  • Endowed Chairs - Endowed Chairs are a hallmark of great institutions and one of the most prestigious honors that can be bestowed on a physician.  They provide financial resource for the physician leader holding the chair to advance his or her clinical specialty by focusing on patient care for the entire organization.

  • Endowed Professorships - Professorships will be held by our renowned orthopedic surgeons and these funds would support their involvement in advancing patient care through education and research while still providing excellent one-on-one patient care.  These professorships will report to the endowed chairs of each department.

  • Endowed Fellowships - Provides a unique opportunity for donors interested in supporting continued physician education through leading-edge and innovative procedures and approaches not otherwise supported by traditional operation funding. A fellowship fund will allow Hoag to build on this program of education orthopedic surgeons.
