Dr. Joshua T. Carothers was awarded the 2014 British Traveling Fellowship recently by the Hip Society’s Fellowship and Mentorship Committee. The opportunity allows him to travel to Great Britain for a month to visit host institutions and share ideas. Carothers joined New Mexico Orthopaedics in 2008 and quickly became one of the practice’s experts in total joint replacement, including hip and knee procedures.
This is a prestigious recognition of Dr. Carothers’ work in area of hip surgery and reconstruction, as the Hip Society is a small group of hip reconstruction surgeons in the U.S., with a very selective membership. In fact, Dr. Carothers is only the second physician in New Mexico to be invited to do the traveling fellowship. Dr. Carothers commented, “I am honored at having been selected, as only two young surgeons per year are chosen.”
Qualified applicants have to be fellowship-trained in hip surgery, be a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon, and demonstrate a willingness to advance hip surgery via research, publications, and/or presentations.
Dr. Carothers also was ranked first in his class in medical school and did his residency in orthopaedic surgery at Duke University. We are very fortunate to have Dr. Carothers as a practicing hip and knee surgeon in the state of New Mexico.
