Hand & Upper Extremity Fellowship Director's Message

Moheb Moneim, MD

Deana Mercer
Associate Professor

Thank you for your interest in our ACGME-accredited Hand & Upper Extremity Fellowship Program. We have two, 12-month fellowship positions are filled every year for an August 1st start. Completion of an approved orthopaedic, plastic or general surgery residency training program is required.

Our well-balanced program focuses on congenital problems, arthritis, trauma, and microsurgery. We have a large volume of peripheral nerve injuries at UNM Hospital--acute and late. Free flaps are also covered during the fellowship. The Orthopaedic Service does its own flaps. Our replantation service is moderately busy with about two to three cases a month. A pediatric, upper extremity clinic is held weekly at Carrie Tingley Hospital. Our microsurgery research laboratory has a full-time technician and three microscopes continuously available during the week for practice, teaching and research. In addition, we have an active biomechanics research laboratory.
