Adult Reconstruction and General Orthopaedics

Adult Reconstructive Surgery

Surgeons in adult reconstruction specialize in the surgical treatment of bone and joint disorders and play an important role in the development of joint arthroplasties, corrective osteotomies, implants, biomaterials, bone, cartilage, and soft tissue research. Post-traumatic, inflammatory and degenerative problems of all joints including the knee, hip, elbow and shoulder are successfully treated hundreds of times per year.

Surgeons perform joint sparing procedures such as tibial, femoral and acetabular osteotomies. Surgeons consult with and receive assistance from the departments of Internal Medicine, Radiology, Physiatry, and other medical and surgical subspecialties. Hundreds of total knee and total hip arthroplasties are conducted each year, with a strong emphasis on the complex revision cases.

The clinical joint replacement activity is supported by a strong biomechanics laboratory which is growing into a leading international simulation and testing research facility for total knee replacement implants.
