Microsurgery Fellowship

The Microsurgery Fellowship at The Ohio State University offers a comprehensive and high-volume experience in microsurgical reconstruction. The program is 1-year in duration and participates in the Microsurgery Match.

Facilities through which fellows rotate include: Ohio State University Hospital (UH), Ohio State University Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital (The James), Ohio State University Hospital East (UHE), Grant Hospital, and Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

At The Ohio State University, fellows work with our 8 current faculty microsurgeons (Cabiling, Chandawarkar, Chao, Evangelista, Lee, Miller, Skoracki, Valerio). In addition, fellows work with 3 microsurgeons at Grant Hospital (Abouhassan, Minarchek, Wells), and 1 at Nationwide Children’s Hospital (Bjorklund).

Through these sites and faculty, fellows are exposed to a broad spectrum of microsurgical procedures, including those related to trauma, cancer, and of a congenital nature. In addition, procedures for lymphedema and other specialized operations are also performed (e.g., jejunal transfer, targeted muscle reinnervation, facial reanimation, obstetric brachial plexus palsy, VCA).

Fellows in our program have the opportunity to do a 1-month rotation at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taiwan, numerous opportunities for research, and attend the ASRM annual meeting where our group has previously won Best Case, Best Save, and Beahm Best Breast Paper Awards.
