Welcome from the chair

Geisinger Health System serves more than three million residents in 45 counties as a not-for-profit, fully integrated health service organization that is dedicated to excellence in care, education, research, and service. Our physician-led system includes a multidisciplinary physician group practice with system-wide aligned goals, successful clinical programs, a sophisticated information technology platform, a robust research program and an insurance provider, Geisinger Health Plan.

The mission of Geisinger Orthopaedic Institute is to provide the highest quality patient care, improve mobility, and enhance the quality of life for all, while advancing the science of orthopaedic surgery and its related disciplines through research and education. Excellence pervades our patient care, teaching, learning, opportunities and diversity. We stand ready to achieve prominence by engaging a mind-set of all things possible.

Our residency program focuses on optimizing didactic and clinical excellence through an apprenticeship model that offers early one-on-one mentorship from leading faculty in all major orthopaedic subspecialties. Our major, tertiary care referral center ensures exposure to the most complex orthopaedic pathology. To further enhance the educational experience, support is provided by our internal research infrastructure which promotes our residents to pursue basic science and clinical research with the complement of internal funding sources.

Thank you for visiting our website and I invite you to explore what sets us apart.
