On Dr. Cole’s rotation, you will experience the most advanced techniques and philosophies for treating complex shoulder, elbow, and knee pathology. Dr. Cole’s team consists of 3 PA-C’s, 3 research assistants, and multiple ancillary staff that assist with delivering clinical care. A typical week is comprised of 2-3 clinical days and/or 2-3 operative days. Clinic days consist of seeing approximately 90 patients, and encompass the full spectrum of operative and non-operative treatment of musculoskeletal injury, including the most advanced biologic strategies. Operative days are held at one of the 4 facilities, where 10-14 cases per day are divided across 2 rooms. On average, fellows will perform well over 200 cases with Dr. Cole during the 10-week rotation. As an international tertiary center for cartilage restoration, while on service you will gain exposure to 10-20 meniscal allograft transplants and 20-30 osteochondral allograft procedures, amongst other procedures such as MACI, biocartilage, bone marrow aspirate concentrate injections, and various periarticular osteotomies. This complexity is well balanced with primary and revision ligamentous reconstruction (30-40), arthroscopic shoulder stabilization (15-20), rotator cuff repair (30-40), and anatomic and reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (20-30). As the head team physician of the Chicago Bulls, your patient exposure includes athletes at every participation level. Finally, by working with the managing partner for Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush, you will gain invaluable insight and mentorship on how to build and maintain an evidence-based practice that successfully manages social media, collects patient reported outcomes for clinical research, and utilizes the most current treatment algorithms to deliver outstanding patient outcomes.
