Goals and Characteristics of this Fellowship: The goal of the Stanford University PM&R Interventional Spine Fellowship is to train a dedicated physiatrist in advanced diagnosis and comprehensive management of acute and chronic spine disease. The fellow will encounter a wide spectrum of conditions affecting the spine including those treated by medical, interventional, and surgical measures.
The Stanford Spine Center is a word-class multidisciplinary facility with on-site clinics, imaging (ultrasound, x-ray, CT and MRI), electrodiagnostics lab, therapy gym, and surgery center. The fellow will work and learn in this dynamic environment under the guidance of the program director and its many faculty. Faculty include fellowship-trained spine and musculoskeletal specialists from PM&R, Orthopaedic Surgery, Neurosurgery and Radiology. The fellow is exposed to a broad range of procedures including ultrasound and fluoroscopic-guided percutaneous interventions (mix is approximately 30% cervical, 5% thoracic, 50% lumbar and 15% appendicular) and electrodiagnostic studies.
