About Anderson Clinic Post-Graduate Medical Education Foundation
Anderson Clinic Post-Graduate Medical Education Foundation is a non-profit organization that offers a one-year clinical fellowship in adult total joint reconstruction (4 positions). Founded in 1983, the program stresses clinical evaluation of primary and revision hip and knee arthroplasty patients, surgical reconstruction, and postoperative management. Fellows become proficient in routine and complex primary hip and knee arthroplasty, as well as revision arthroplasty. Fellows are exposed to a multitude of reconstructive options, surgical approaches, and arthroplasty implants (using implants from the four major manufacturers) while rotating three months with each attending.

Dorr Awards, the AAHKS Clinical Award, the James A. Rand Award, as well as the OREF CCJR Award. He has published over 100 articles. He speaks both nationally and internationally on topics regarding hip and knee replacement with focus on patient outcomes and analysis of implant function.
Dr. Engh has remained current in the rapidly changing healthcare environment. He has embraced minimally invasive hip and knee replacement and computer assisted techniques. He was one of the first doctors in the country to be trained and perform total hip resurfacing.
Dr. William Hamilton is an Anderson Clinic fellowship trained surgeon. He frequently travels the country to lecture and consult on topics involving joint replacement, and he has several ongoing research studies in this area. He was awarded the prestigious Insall Knee Society traveling fellowship, with visits to many of the leading centers for hip and knee replacement in North America.
In 2009, Dr. Hamilton became the first surgeon in the INOVA Health System to perform the anterior approach to total hip arthroplasty utilizing the specialized Hana table.
Dr. Hamilton has been the recipient of multiple research awards to include the OREF/CCJR Clinical practice award, the AAHKS Clinical Paper Award, and the AAOS annual meeting Outstanding Surgical Video award on 2 occasions. He was chosen by Orthopedics Today as a member of Generation Next, a recognition to honor outstanding talent in orthopedics.
