Built under the tenure of the former chairmen including John Royal Moore, MD, John W. Lachman, MD, Michael Clancy, MD, Joseph Thoder, MD and most recently Eric Kropf, MD, the department has local and national recognition for its strong traditions in sports medicine and evolution to continue its commitment to the education of high achieving medical students and residents through the cost effective and individualized patient care to a diverse patient population.   Temple Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine physicians are board certified/board eligible in orthopaedic surgery or sports medicine. There are currently seventeen (17) full and part-time faculty members with sub-specializations in Sports Medicine, Hand Surgery, Joint Replacement/Adult Reconstruction, Orthopedic Trauma, Spine, Orthopaedic Oncology, Foot & Ankle, General Orthopedics and non-operative sports medicine. The department’s surgeons are consistently included among regional and national "Best Doctors" listings. They are affiliated with the Philadelphia Shriner’s Hospital for Children and St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, whose faculty hold adjunct appointments within the department.   The Sports Medicine program continues to expand and provide optimal access and care to the active populations as well as Temple University students, student-athletes and area high school and collegiate athletes under the guidance of the non-operative sports physicians. Temple Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine remains engaged in the Philadelphia Catholic League, providing physician services to Archbishop Wood, St. Joseph’s Preparatory, Father Judge and LaSalle College High Schools as well as Arcadia University. As the team physician for these programs, the sports medicine providers have an expansive network of relationships with area athletic trainers and physical therapists who seek guidance and referral recommendations from this trusted resource. As the team physicians and orthopaedic providers for Temple University Athletics, the only Division I FBS program in Philadelphia, TFP’s Sports Medicine team is integral in daily life of student athletes and wellness initiatives. Cory Keller, DO serves as Temple University’s NCAA designated Health Care Administrator, responsible for policy and development of sustainable healthcare for student athletes within the university, and collaborating with on campus services. This year in particular, ensuring the highest level of care and safety is a priority for the Department and the American Athletic Conference due to COVID-19. Beyond the realm of athletics, the Sports Medicine Team is positioned throughout its many locations to provide musculoskeletal ultrasound and procedures, biologic injections, and support to the surgical team in increasing the access and presence of the department in the community.   Temple Orthopaedics Hand Surgery program has continued to grow under the leadership of Joseph Thoder, MD, as the director of the program and now returning as Interim Chairman. Collaboration with Temple’s Department of Plastic Surgery has allowed for a shared call schedule, improved academic exchange and research initiatives dedicated to hand/upper extremity injuries and issues while ensuring patients have access to a fellowship trained hand surgeon to provide them the best possible outcome following accident or injury.   The joint reconstruction program under Dr. Matthew Lorei, has focused on the implementation of evidence based care pathways over the past 2-3 years for patients undergoing elective total joint arthroplasty at Temple University Hospital, and now the Temple University Hospital – Jeanes Campus as well. Working closely with the Epic EMR team, standardized care pathways and patient reported outcomes are utilized to ensure that consistent workflows and goals are outlined and documented in the EMR to control and prevent infection rates, and reduce length of stay. As a result, the section has recently gone over 365 days without a total hip or knee infection. Calendar year 2021 will also see the return of the Medicare Bundled Payment Care Initiative for value-based payments for lower extremity joint replacement performed within Temple Health facilities.   Temple Orthopaedic Trauma remains a cornerstone of the department and Temple University Hospital. Under the direction of Saqib Rehman, MD, MBA, caring for community related orthopaedic trauma and accepting the care of complex orthopaedic trauma from area hospitals on the service provides excellent opportunities to the residents and is supported by all faculty members through trauma call coverage. The Orthopaedic Trauma program works closely with all related departments, has developed standardized hip fracture protocols, is included in the Medicare BPCI for CY21, and leads the department in academic initiatives. In addition, the Annual Philadelphia Orthopaedic Trauma Symposium is hosted at Temple each year (including virtually in June 2020 for the 12th Annual Conference). The department is one of the busiest in Temple Faculty Physicians Practice Plan with over 55,000 outpatient physician visits per year, 25,000 outpatient physical therapy visits yearly and 4,000 surgical cases at 5 different hospital/surgi-centers in fiscal year 2019 (pre-COVID-19). In fiscal year 2020, despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, TFP’s Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine maintained a strong presence in the Temple Health system, supporting the COVID-19 units while ensuring access for the orthopaedic patients requiring care, with 47,075 outpatient visits, 18,872 outpatient physical therapy visits, and 3,354 surgical cases despite condensing operations to hospital based offices for 3 months.   The department has (3) convenient outpatient locations throughout the Philadelphia region where they see and treat patients. All offices provide in office radiology services through TFP Radiology. These offices also offer outpatient orthopaedic physical therapy. One of the hallmarks of the department is ensuring timely access to the best possible fit for any orthopaedic needs, and they are able to achieve that through the health science campus and satellite offices reaching from North Philadelphia to the Northeast and Philadelphia suburbs. Offices are located at: • Temple University Hospital, 3509 N. Broad Street, 5th Floor Boyer Pavilion, Philadelphia, PA 19140 • Temple Health at Ft. Washington, 515 Pennsylvania Avenue, Fort Washington, PA 19034 • Temple Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine at Temple Hospital – Jeanes Campus, Friends Hall, 7604 Central Ave, Suite 100, Philadelphia, PA 19111   The return of Temple Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine to Temple University Hospital – Jeanes Campus this year is an exciting opportunity for growth and expansion of academic orthopaedics in Northeast Philadelphia. With an on campus outpatient office, assumption of call, and increased presence of surgical cases from TFP, the Jeanes Campus will provide full service orthopaedics to the surrounding community at the same level of expertise as the main campus in a competitive market.   Teaching/Education Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Program   All faculty members of Temple Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine are vital to the success of their residents. There are four categorical residency positions available annually. With the closure of Hahnemann Hospital and ther dissolution of Drexel’s Orthopaedic Surgery Residency, Temple Orthopaedics was able to integrate one of Hahnemann’s residents for a total of 21 residents currently. The first year of the orthopaedic surgery residency includes six months in the orthopaedic department at Temple University Hospital, three of those months with the orthopaedic trauma service with daily consult involvement, and three months within the outpatient orthopaedic subspecialty clinics. Four months of the first year are spent rotating on general surgery services including the SICU, plastic/vascular/general trauma surgery. The remaining two months include orthopaedic electives with anesthesia and emergency medicine. The second year of the residency is spent at Temple University Hospital in orthopaedics. The residents rotate through four services of three months each at Temple. These services include: • Sports Medicine • Orthopaedic Trauma • Joint Reconstruction • Hand Surgery   The resident is expected to learn how to perform the essentials of an orthopaedic physical examination and participate in the work-up of new patients admitted to their service. The resident attends the general orthopaedic and fracture clinics, and is present in the operating room for surgery, performing procedures according to his/her ability, under the supervision of the Chief resident and Attending physician.   During the third year of the residency, six months are spent on pediatric services, including three months at Shriners Hospital for Children and three months at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children. Both are the pediatric affiliates of Temple University Hospital. Shiners Hospital focuses on pediatric orthopaedic problems such as scoliosis, developmental dysplasia of the hip, cerebral palsy, slipped capital femoral epiphysis, perthes disease, congenital hand anomalies, and clubfeet. St. Christopher's Hospital is one of two level 1 pediatric trauma centers in Philadelphia and residents there focus on the diagnosis and management of more acute problems in children including fractures, acute infections, and other common pediatric orthopaedic problems.   An additional three months of the third year are spent working at Fox Chase Cancer Center rotating on the orthopaedic oncology service in combination with the foot and ankle service at Temple University Hospital. The remaining three months are dedicated to Temple University Hospital’s Jeanes Campus location. As the department’s partnership with Jeanes and Fox Chase expands, as well as with the addition of an orthopaedic oncologist to TFP’s faculty, these rotations may be adjusted to further expand the opportunities for the residents at Fox Chase Cancer Center and Temple University Hospital – Jeanes Campus. Temple Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine also offers an international service opportunity to third year residents in partnership with the John Lachman Orthopaedic Research Fund and AIC-CURE International Hospital in Kijabe, Kenya. Since 2017, under the supervision of a Temple faculty member and staff surgeons of AIC-CURE Kenya and Kijabe Hospital, residents are integrated into the College of Surgeons of East, Central and Southern Africa (COSECSA) certified Orthopaedic Surgery Residency program for 2 weeks, performing cases and participating in the care of adult and pediatric patients at the hospital locations, and the mobile clinics servicing the surrounding communities. This unique experience is supporting one resident a year in their third year of training, providing first-hand experience in global medicine in a developing country.   The fourth year of residency includes six months at Abington Memorial Hospital. There the residents benefit from taking the lead at a busy private orthopaedic practice with emphasis on joint reconstruction, hand surgery, spine surgery, and orthopaedic trauma. The remaining six months are spent at Temple University Hospital as the senior resident on the general orthopaedic service and the spine service for three months each.   The fifth year of orthopaedic residency is spent at Temple University Hospital as a chief resident. The chiefs are responsible for the supervision and care of the patients on the orthopaedic service, in the clinics, and for the instruction of medical students rotating through the Orthopaedic Service.   In 2017, a dedicated curriculum for surgical simulation for the orthopaedic surgery residents was created. Industry support and physical space for these efforts have been secured. The curriculum has started in a limited fashion and will continue to expand to all residents in the coming years. With a young and dynamic faculty, the department wants to become a leader in the use of simulation and other web based learning to provide the best and most comprehensive curriculum despite the pressures of work hour restrictions and the demands of clinical productivity required of faculty.   Didactic conferences are held daily at 6:30 A.M. These conferences cover various orthopaedic topics and include regular fracture conferences, journal clubs, basic science and biomechanics discussions, indications conferences, M&M conferences, and a review of the week's surgery. Grand Rounds are held on Wednesday mornings and select Saturday mornings during the academic year and include both in-house and guest speakers. Since March, the residents and the residency program directors have been able to seamlessly transition these conferences to online forums, with excellent results in increasing the faculty engagement and availability despite being at other physical locations for clinics.   Research, either basic science or clinical, is a program requirement. Each resident must complete at least one project suitable for peer review publication prior to graduation. Both the medical school and the university offer access to various facilities and expertise including bioengineering, kinesiology, an animal laboratory, and statistics. The department maintains a complete patient database, which is accessible to all residents and attending staff. There is an active medical student summer research program that often involves the residents as mentors. The department publishes an annual journal including extended abstracts detailing research activity for the year. In recent years, residents have presented their research at local, regional, and national conferences, receiving numerous awards for their projects. The John Lachman Orthopaedic Research Fund is the cornerstone of supporting these efforts by providing funding to residents for presentations and for specific developmental courses throughout their residency with Temple Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine.   The program selects its residents through the National Intern & Residency Matching Program. Applications for residency should be made via ERAS by November 1st, during the senior year of medical school.   While there are no current active fellowship positions within the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine, increasing clinical volume and faculty interest remain under review for evaluation of future opportunities to restore or initiate fellowship programs. Medical, Physician Assistant and Podiatry Student Education   Temple Orthopaedic faculty actively teaches students from LKSOM’s medical and physician assistant programs, and Temple’s School of Podiatric Medicine. Educational programs remain an area of focus, strength and pride within the Department of Orthopaedics. By adapting and expanding musculoskeletal educational opportunities for a variety of Temple University students and learners, the addition of new faculty and specialties allow the department to effectively educate a much larger number of learners. The department continues to focus on medical student teaching programs to stimulate more interest in the field of orthopaedic surgery and improve the chances of successful residency match for Temple medical students. Diversification of the department has stimulated minds and provide a network of mentors and connections to guide and assist learners through this process. A primary care sports medicine elective was created as a unique offering for medical students interested in non-surgical musculoskeletal career pathways.   Orthopaedic Surgery Clinical Elective: The department continues to offer a clinical elective in Orthopaedic Surgery to MS3 and MS4 students. MS3 students typically enroll in a 2-week block, whereas MS4 students rotate in a three or four-week block. The MS4 students are split into “general interest” students and “career interest” (aka sub-I) students. For the 2020-21 academic year, the department has not had visiting students, nor have students been allowed to visit other institutions. In order to improve the LKSOM student exposure and to better support them with residency recommendation letters, the department has added the opportunity for a second MS4 rotation. The traditional Sub-I rotation has been retained, but limited to a mostly “inpatient” experience with trauma, adult recon, and spine. The second rotation is limited to sports, foot/ankle, shoulder, and hand and is called the “Outpatient” rotation. There are four to five students per block.   The department had previously incorporated more online didactic content as well as additional live faculty sessions weekly with the students. Online content is provided and organized on Canvas. A flipped classroom, active learning model is utilized in several of the sessions. Evaluation is done through observation, summative comments sourced from faculty and residents, and through written examinations based on required reading material. Feedback is given in a formal end-of-rotation meeting with the clerkship director. Research   Temple Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine has been involved in clinical research since 2002 with many former and current faculty participating in either drug or device clinical trials. Residents are also involved in clinical and basic science research projects throughout their residency. Various residents have successfully presented at national meetings such as the AAOS as well as local meetings as a podium presentation, scientific exhibits or posters. Each summer the department hosts fifteen to twenty Temple medical students from the OIG (orthopaedic interest group) who wish to pursue a career in Orthopaedics. This consists of an eight-week program designed to teach them how to do a research project from the basics to completion. Students are given an orientation to research on the first day with presentations on statistics in research by Susan Fisher, PhD – Chair of the Department of Clinical Sciences; a Pub-Med and Re-Works overview by Natalie Tagee - Education Services Librarian; and an IRB overview by Gabrielle Rebillard - Institutional Review Board IRB Program Coordinator.   The Organization Temple University (TU) Founded as a night school by Russell Conwell in 1884, Temple University has evolved into an international powerhouse in higher education and a top-tier research institution with roughly 40,000 undergraduate, graduate and professional students.

The school attracts students and faculty committed to making a difference in patient care, research, education and public service — at home and across the globe.   The School of Medicine and Temple University Hospital (TUH), its chief clinical training site, provide care for patients from throughout the region seeking advanced tertiary and quaternary-level care. In addition, TUH serves one of the most vulnerable populations in the nation, providing more free and under-reimbursed care than any other hospital in Pennsylvania.   With clinical training sites that include other member hospitals and specialty centers of the Temple University Health System and educational affiliates of the School of Medicine, medical students gain experience in a variety of urban, suburban, and rural in- and out-patient settings. They learn to provide culturally competent, interprofessional care to a diverse population of patients with simple conditions as well as highly complex ones. The Lewis Katz School of Medicine is a school that prizes not just technical excellence but diversity, equality and inclusion. It teaches the true art and science of “doctoring.“ Moreover, its educational strategic plan, “Improving Health Through Innovation in Medical Education,” keeps pace with new medical knowledge and emerging trends in care delivery.   The school’s home base in Philadelphia is a spectacular 11-story, 480,000 square-foot medical education and research building that features state-of-the-art facilities and technologies for medical education and research. It opened in 2009. With specialized research centers focused on population health, metabolic disease, cancer, heart disease and other strategic priorities, the school conducts investigations to break new ground – and trains future generations of researchers to follow suit. On October 13, 2015, Temple's medical school was officially dedicated as the Lewis Katz School of Medicine – an historic milestone in the school’s history.   There are 20 clinical departments in the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University, comprised of over 900 full-and part time faculty, over 800 volunteer faculty, and more than 1,000 employees. Each department is engaged in education, patient care and research. LKSOM takes pride in the excellence of its teaching, service and research programs. It remains fully accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education. It admits 220 medical students and approximately 24 graduate students. Currently there are 34 residency and fellowship programs enrolling 556 physicians. With more than 13,000 alumni, Temple represents a huge proportion of the physician base in the Delaware Valley. Reflecting the excellent quality of a Temple medical education, its M.D. graduates are highly regarded by competitive residency training programs, and have made significant career contributions to both medical practice and medical research. Many have become department chairpersons, deans and vice presidents of major academic medical centers.   LKSOM Patient Care   Faculty members at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University (LKSOM) are well known as gifted teachers and innovative researchers, but it is their clinical expertise that draws patients from throughout the Philadelphia region and beyond. Widely respected for their knowledge and skill, Temple physicians treat hundreds of thousands of patients each year in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings throughout the Temple University Health System. Temple has invested heavily in new clinical programs, technology and facilities in recent years. The School of Medicine has also recruited renowned physicians from around the country who have enhanced Temple’s capacity to expand its clinical mission well beyond its traditional boundaries. This growth and dynamism is transforming Temple from a leading Philadelphia academic medical center into a nationally renowned, top-tier medical institution.   Each year, dozens of Temple physicians are named “Top Doctors” by national and regional publications. In addition, Temple physicians are also involved in numerous clinical trials that are testing the latest therapies. These means Temple patients often have access to advanced treatment options not found at most hospitals.   Accessing Temple care is easier than ever thanks to a geographic expansion that has brought Temple physicians and staff into Temple-affiliated hospitals, Center City Philadelphia and the suburbs of Oaks and Fort Washington. While this expansion is significant, it has not lessened Temple’s commitment to its economically challenged North Philadelphia community. Here, Temple serves as a safety-net hospital and the largest provider of healthcare for individuals who have little or no ability to pay for the services they need.   LKSOM Research The Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University has experienced dramatic growth in the breadth and scope of its research enterprise over the past decade. As part of its strategic plan and with the support of a recent capital campaigns, LKSOM scientists have been responsible for ground-breaking advancements in areas across the scientific spectrum, including: • Cancer Biology • Cardiovascular and Thrombosis • Cell and Developmental Biology • Clinical Lung Research • HIV • Immunology and Autoimmunity • Metabolic Syndrome and Diabetes • Neuroscience • Substance Abuse • Translational Medicine   Recognizing the need to provide its faculty with the tools to conduct state-of-the-art research, LKSOM has developed several core facilities that embellish the other cores and facilities already in existence. Together, they provide centralized access to equipment used by faculty in all departments, helping to reduce duplication of biomedical research. Through generous faculty support coupled with the ability to attract some of the world's greatest scientific minds, LKSOM is an emerging leader in basic and clinical research. They have established several new programs that are in the vanguard of scientific discovery. These include the Temple Lung Center and the Center for Neuroscience.   Research Programs   LKSOM has eight basic science departments and thirteen research centers, all of which focus on improving the human condition through cutting edge research and the education and professional development of the school’s graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Faculty is actively engaged in basic research and other scholarly activities designed to improve public health and strongly encourage residents to participate in scholarly activities as part of their training. LKSOM provides its faculty centralized access to equipment and the tools to conduct state-of-the-art research, enabling its basic science and clinical research centers to emerge as leaders in the industry.   To improve human health, scientific discoveries must be translated into practical applications. Such discoveries typically begin at "the bench" with basic research — in which scientists study disease at a molecular or cellular level — then progress to the clinical level, or the patient's "bedside." Faculty in the School of Medicine's basic science and clinical departments are committed to the goal of translation. The school’s basic scientists provide clinicians with new tools for use in patients and for assessment of their impact, and clinical researchers make novel observations about the nature and progression of disease that often stimulate basic investigations. Temple Health Temple Health is the collective name for all of the health, education and research activities carried out by the Temple University Health System (TUHS) and the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University (LKSOM). The two enjoy a close clinical and educational partnership and together make up one of the nation’s most dynamic healthcare organizations.   TUHS is a $1.6 billion academic health system dedicated to providing access to quality patient care and supporting excellence in medical education and research.

When sick, we prescribe the appropriate medicine and when a patient’s condition requires, refer them to a specialist. At Temple Family Medicine we offer prenatal care in our regular primary care offices. We provide newborn, pediatric, and postpartum care for mothers and newborns.

In addition to routine gynecologic care (pap smears, breast exams, etc.) we provide complete outpatient contraceptive care and other related services. It is our goal to help patients be as healthy as they can be.   The clinical practice with the Department of Family and Community Medicine is a NCQA-designated patient center medical home (PCMH). At the heart of a PCMH is the patient’s relationship with their personal Temple physician or PCP. The PCMH is very sensitive to our patient’s special needs such as cultural beliefs, language, or physical limitations. Our patients are part of a team – our physicians, clinical staff, front office staff and others work together to provide quality care that is also efficient and cost effective. The PCMH also works with specialists to ensure that each patient’s care is coordinated.   About the Residency Program Approved in 2020 with plans to begin recruiting its first class in 2021, our 6-6-6 ACGME accredited program for family medicine training is based at Temple University Hospital main campus.
