Three orthopaedic surgeons representing the Arthroscopy Association of North America visited the Farmington Surgery Center May 13.

They observed cases by Drs. Robert Arciero, Gus Mazzocca, Kevin Shea, Tom DeBerardino and John Fulkerson as part of the AANA’s Arthroscopy Traveling Fellowship program, which exposes young physicians to leading surgeons in the field of arthroscopy.

"It is a great honor to be chosen as a hosting site," says Chris Jackson, nurse manager of the Farmington Surgery Center.

The AANA chose six sites known for superior arthroscopic surgery to be host institutions for its spring 2010 fellowship.
