Service Chief, Arthroplasty Service

Massachusetts General Hospital

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) is seeking a Chief of the Arthroplasty Service. Candidate must be an arthroplasty fellowship-trained, board-certified orthopaedic surgeon with an exemplary record that exhibits the department’s core values of high-quality patient care, collegiality, leadership, and education. The Chief should be appointable at the Associate or Professor level at Harvard Medical School (HMS). This distinguished position involves leading a team of high-caliber joint surgeons, in addition to assuming a robust clinical practice. It is expected that this individual will lead all aspects of the Arthroplasty service, including the education of the medical students, residents, and fellows. This position also offers the selected candidate the opportunity to work closely with the world-renowned Harris Orthopaedic Laboratory, which has pioneered the development of orthopaedic biomaterials and joint registry data. The Chief will have a pivotal role in the future of the MGH Arthroplasty Fellowship. The Department is seeking an outstanding surgeon who is a recognized national and international leader, consummate educator, and an accomplished researcher. This position will be located primarily at the Massachusetts General Hospital, but will involve management of a tiered joint offering including services at MGH, our community affiliate institution Newton Wellesley Hospital, and a same-day outpatient surgi-center opportunity.

We are looking for an individual capable of thriving in a leadership position in the Arthroplasty program at the Massachusetts General Hospital, as well as collaborating in the system-wide MassGeneral Brigham Joint Replacement offering.
