The goal of the Spine Surgery Fellowship Program is a comprehensive education in the science of spine surgery, clinical as well as research, basic science, teaching and education. The fellowship is co-directed by Dr. Christopher Bono, Chief of the Orthopaedic Spine Service at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Dr. Thomas Cha, Assistant Chief of the Orthopaedic Spine Center here at Mass General.
Fellows rotate in both the operating room and the clinic setting with treatment of degenerative adult spine conditions, spinal deformity, acute spine trauma and spinal tumors. Fellows also have exposure to the basic science lab at MGH as part of the teaching experience. They will have the opportunity to publish a peer-reviewed clinical or basic science research project. And fellows take part in the education of medical students and residents including presenting lectures related to the fellowship curriculum.
