Research highlights, fellowship information, and other resources for physicians.
Our doctors are committed to scientific investigation that advances the field of orthopedics and benefits patients young and old. We collaborate with organizations who share our research mission and vision. Our continued research allows us to be the leaders in orthopedic and musculoskeletal treatment.
Our doctors author and contribute to wide-ranging publications featuring specialized orthopedic care, technology innovations and new treatment methods. Below you’ll find a few examples of some recent research. If you click on the specific names at the bottom of the page, you’ll find more research that our doctors have completed.
Information for all of our research can be found on the TCO Foundation page, at TCOFoundation.org.
The Fairview/MOSMI fellowship program is a collaboration between Fairview Health Services and the physicians of Minnesota Orthopedic Sports Medicine Institute (MOSMI) at Twin Cities Orthopedics. The MOSMI physicians make up the majority of the fellowship faculty. The fellowship program is one of four sports medicine fellowship programs nationally that exists in a non-university setting.
The one year fellowship offers orthopedic physicians advanced training in sports medicine. The experience includes clinical, surgical, on-field and athletic training room experiences. It provides the opportunity for orthopedic surgeons to move beyond their traditional role and work together as a sports medicine team.
The Foot & Ankle Fellowship program offers advanced subspecialty training in foot and ankle orthopaedics in a high-volume private practice. The Foot & Ankle Fellow will rotate for a total of three months (two six-week rotations) with each of the four attendings (Dr. J. Chris Coetzee, Dr. Bryan Den Hartog, Dr. Patrick Ebeling, and Dr. Jeffrey Seybold) and can expect exposure to all aspects of foot and ankle orthopaedics with a particular focus on ankle replacement and arthrodesis, hindfoot and forefoot reconstruction, sports injuries, and trauma. The Fellow will be expected to: develop knowledge and skills to cultivate an individual practice; develop the knowledge and skills necessary to provide complete orthopaedic foot and ankle care for persons of all ages; participate as a member of a team that includes physicians, rehabilitation specialists, and prosthetists and orthotists; and participate in a publishable-quality research project. This fellowship supports professional growth through regularly scheduled didactic lectures, monthly journal club and research meetings, industry labs, and participation in AOFAS meetings.
TCO has been approved as a teaching site to host fellows through ISAKOS (International Society of Arthroscopy, Knee Surgery and Orthopaedic Sports Medicine). These fellows have requested additional training and/or exposure to arthroscopy, knee surgery and sports medicine. Fellows are current doctors from all over the globe and would travel/visit up to six medical centers throughout the world before attending the ISAKOS Biennial Congress. The goal of the program is to have visiting international surgeons observe in clinic and surgery to learn new concepts and techniques to improve their care of patients.
