He returned to New York's Hospital for Special Surgery to become their first fellow in Limb Lengthening & Reconstruction Surgery.

He has presented his clinical and biomechanical research at medical meetings and has authored and edited articles for various Orthopaedic journals and textbooks. He has lectured extensively on related topics to residency training programs and in the community setting. Skilled in the art of less invasive surgery, Dr. Fragomen will perform a sophisticated and comprehensive analysis of each patient to determine an optimal treatment plan.
