“UVA Orthopedics is humbled to be recognized again by Becker’s Hospital Review for our exceptional, comprehensive patient care and outcomes in all orthopedic specialties, particularly hip and knee joint replacement,” said Bobby Chhabra, MD, chair of UVA’s Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. “This is an outstanding honor for our faculty, our healthcare team members and our partners from across the UVA Medical Center and UVA Health System who work diligently each and every day to provide the highest-quality care and service to patients throughout Virginia and beyond.”

Our Host Program has made almost 70 successful matches this year between alumni hosts and fourth-year UVA medical students traveling on residency interviews. The program has helped students like Sarah Hakkenberg, SMD'18, seen here with alum Dennis Pevarski MD’92, at his home in Asheville, North Carolina. Thanks to Dr. Pevarski and all of our hosts for making this program happen. Learn more about the Host Program on our website at #uvamedalum
