The Walt Disney Pavilion at AdventHealth for Children, formerly Florida Hospital for Children, is looking for a fellowship trained Pediatric Orthopaedic surgeon to join our team (website) and continue to develop our outstanding program in Orlando, Florida.  We are looking for an energetic and enthusiastic team player who has interest in congenital hand and arm deformity with skills in complex upper extremity/hand reconstruction.  Management of brachial plexus palsy would also be preferred along with hand trauma.  Our unparalleled network of 27 hospitals in the state with one children’s hospital at the center provides an excellent opportunity for practice growth and professional development. 

Responsibilities of the new physician leader will include:  growing into high volume outpatient clinics with a wide variety of patients, outreach clinics (currently providing care in three locations) and inpatient coverage in equal rotation with other group members.  The practice is also supported by a nonoperative pediatric sports medicine physician focused on outpatient clinic. 

Working with an expanding and committed children’s hospital, an established and successful pediatric ortho group of two other surgeons with a strong referral base, a pediatric residency program, a family-centered practice atmosphere, and a competitive benefits / compensation package are just a few of the many reasons why this is an excellent career opportunity to consider.

Requirements of the position

  • Fellowship training in Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery
  • Board certified/eligible in Orthopaedic surgery
  • Dedication to the highest quality patient care
  • Solid communication skills with strong work ethic
  • Team player mentality
