ORTHOPEDIC TRAUMA SURGEON

We are seeking a fellowship trained trauma surgeon or, an orthopedic surgeon with at least 5 years of complex trauma experience.  Candidates must be B/E or B/C in ORS and have a California Medical License. Physicians who “fit” are humble and not ego driven, hardworking and are comfortable working in a collegial team environment.  This position is available due to a retiring surgeon.

Day-to-day cases include periarticular, tibial plateau, pilon, and other complex fractures referred from nearby surrounding Kaiser facilities and Stanford. This is a “cold trauma” practice which allows for a normal schedule and is well suited to raising a family but does allow for complex reconstruction, including cases that require free flaps done in conjunction with our plastic surgery department.  This practice is not in a busy level 1 trauma environment, does not include pelvic or acetabular fractures, but it does feature many complex cases since we are a referral center for cold trauma.

We have (3) fellowship-trained trauma surgeons: (1) part-time and (2) full time.  The new surgeon will handle 40% of the total trauma with 2-3 days in the OR each week.  General orthopedic surgery call is 1 in 11 for our community hospital. The practice is located in San Jose, CA.
