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

Facilities through which fellows rotate include University Hospital (UH), The Ohio State University Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (The James), East Hospital (EH), Grant Hospital and Nationwide Children’s Hospital. At The Ohio State University, fellows work with our nine faculty microsurgeons (Drs. Chetta, Chandawarkar, Chao, Cho, Farhadi, Moore,  Lee, Skoracki, Sorkin). In addition, fellows work with three microsurgeons at Grant Hospital (Drs. Abouhassan, Minarchek, Wells) and one at Nationwide Children’s Hospital (Dr. Bjorklund).

Through these sites and faculty, fellows are exposed to a broad spectrum of microsurgical procedures, including those related to trauma, cancer and those of a congenital nature. In addition, procedures for lymphedema and other specialized operations are also performed (e.g., mesenteric lymph node transfer, targeted muscle reinnervation, supercharged jejunal transfer, nerve transfers).
