University at Buffalo - Department of Orthopaedics

A message from the June A and Eugene R Mindell, MD Chair, Dr. Leslie Bisson

The mission of our Orthopaedic residency program is to develop superb orthopaedic surgeons, expert in improving patients' lives through musculoskeletal care. Our graduates go on to train at the most competitive fellowships in the country, and are widely recognized as technically talented and able to handle complex surgical cases upon completion of our program. We emphasize a team approach to patient care, and our research program affords excellent opportunities for impactful clinical and basic science publications. Our faculty members have fellowship training in every subspecialty, and have studied at the top academic institutions in the country.

If you're interested in premier orthopaedic surgical residency training, I invite you to explore our program on our website, speak with our residents, and come to Buffalo for a closer look.
