Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation

Lisa Lattanza, MD, FAOA, FAAOS, Chair

Yale Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation is committed to delivering exceptional quality and value-driven patient care by fostering a culture of respect and well-being, pursuing innovations and diversity across clinical, research, and educational settings, and supporting our local and global communities.

Thanks to medical and technological advances, such as 3D surgical planning, minimally invasive procedures, patient-specific implants, tissue engineering, and others developed here at Yale, our specialists can accelerate an individual’s ability to return to a healthy and active lifestyle.

From simple to complex, infancy through adulthood, traumatic fractures, dislocations, congenital differences, arthritic joints, chronic musculoskeletal pain, and sports injuries, our team of surgeons combine state-of-the-art techniques with innovative studies to maximize patient outcomes.

Our academic department’s faculty members mentor, operate alongside, and conduct research with medical students, residents, fellows, and international scholars to develop the future leaders in orthopaedics and discover novel ways to continuously improve patient quality of life.

It is our shared belief that varied perspectives, lived experiences, and non-siloed representation generates creative solutions and new opportunities. To that end, our department works intentionally, collectively, and collaboratively to strengthen the recruitment, retention, support, and advancement of a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community that is rooted in belonging.
