Orthopaedic Hand /Upper Extremity Surgeon

Job Description

Well established and growing orthopedic multi-specialty private (physician-owned) practice in Northern New Jersey is seeking a full-time Orthopedic Hand & Upper Extremity Surgeon to join our team.

A successful candidate for this position will be board certified/eligible by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and will have completed an Orthopaedic Hand Surgery Fellowship.  The candidate should also be comfortable treating other Upper Extremity conditions as well as general orthopedic injuries that may present while taking ER Call at a local level 2 community hospital.

Our providers perform surgeries at our two very supportive local hospitals as well as our own partner-owned Ambulatory Surgical Center.  Orthopedic ER call is expected of the physician, and the call rotates between our orthopedic surgeons and one other local orthopedic surgeon.  Current call is once every 6 nights.

We currently have a senior hand specialist who has been in the community for over 40 years, with an overflowing patient population.  We would expect the incoming hand surgeon to assist in continuing to grow our hand surgery practice.  This may include meeting other local primary care docs and/or giving presentations to local community groups as needed. The practice will provide support in facilitating this growth.

We offer a competitive compensation and benefits package including guaranteed salary, bonus structure, paid health benefits, paid time off, and 401(k) with company contributions.  Equity buy-in is available at partnership. Partnership eligibility after 3 years.  Along with partnership would come other opportunities to participate in our practice ancillaries and real-estate ventures.  Orthopedic partners also share in the reimbursed community orthopedic emergency call revenue from the two local hospitals. 

Union County Orthopaedic Group, located in Northern New Jersey, is a 30-minute direct train ride into downtown Manhattan, and a 20-minute local drive to some of the most desirable residential suburbs in the New York City metropolitan area.  We have been serving our community for almost 50 years, and we currently have 2 locations, in Clark, NJ and Linden, NJ; both fully equipped with x-ray and DME.  Union County Orthopedic Group is composed of 5 orthopedic surgeons, 2 PMR physicians and a podiatrist.  Our talented team also includes 4 PAs and 1 NP.  We are also one of the founding divisions of a new orthopedic supergroup, Ortho Alliance NJ, composed of over 100 musculoskeletal providers throughout the state of New Jersey, which will be going live as of January 1, 2021. 

Our physicians work extremely hard, but also understand the value of family time and the importance of taking time off to be away from the practice to recharge.  Our physicians enjoy liberal time off, in addition to a half-day off every week.  

This is a fantastic opportunity for the right candidate, and we welcome your questions and inquiries regarding this position.
