Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon

Maine Medical Partners Orthopedics is seeking a full-time Board Certified/Board Eligible Fellowship-trained Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon, interested in building a pediatric orthopedic program as part of a full service orthopedic division.

Maine Medical Partners – Orthopedics is a multi-disciplinary team of surgeons, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and administrative staff committed to providing high quality medical and surgical care to patients. The Orthopedics division is currently comprised of a surgical team of six surgeons within the Joint Replacement Division, three Trauma and Fracture Care surgeons who are members of Maine Medical Center’s Level One Trauma Program, two Sports Medicine surgeons, 7 non-operative Sports Medicine physicians, one Hand/Upper Extremity surgeon and one Foot and Ankle surgeon.

Maine Medical Center has a dedicated pediatric hospital, The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital, which cares for over 1,500 inpatient discharges per year. Within Maine Health there are multiple pediatric outpatient clinics that serve patients with musculoskeletal issues (including dedicated spasticity/cerebral palsy clinics), as well as an existing pediatric spinal deformity service that includes both Orthopedics and Neurosurgery. Given this existing infrastructure, we believe there is great potential to grow an active medical and surgical pediatric orthopedic service at Maine Medical Center. The ideal candidate would have interest and training in scoliosis surgery in addition to general pediatric orthopedics.

Maine Medical Partners, a subsidiary of Maine Medical Center, is Maine's largest multi-specialty medical group serving the healthcare needs of patients locally and throughout northern New England.  This high quality team of 600 physicians and 350 advanced practice professionals provides a wide range of hospital based, primary, specialty, and sub-specialty adult and pediatric care delivered throughout a network of 54 locations across the State and acts as a regional referral network.

Maine Medical Center has 637 licensed beds and is the state’s leading tertiary care hospital and Level One Trauma Center, with a full complement of residencies and fellowships and an integral part of Tufts University Medical School.  The candidate would have an academic appointment at Tufts University School of Medicine, and the position involves teaching and mentoring residents and medical students from the Maine Medical Center-Tufts University School of Medicine Medical School Program.
