USING CLINICAL RESEARCH TO IMPROVE TREATMENT METHODS
Currently there are several clinical research projects underway in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. One of the great benefits of being part of Nebraska’s only public academic health sciences center, is that we can easily collaborate with the brightest minds in multiple departments to offer our patients the best in today's treatment methods.
Faculty from our department work with clinicians and researchers from the Monroe-Meyer Institute's (MMI) Motion Analysis Laboratory to use state-of-the-art gait analysis to determine the best treatment methods for medical or surgical intervention in pediatric patients.
Every year, we continue to expand our surgery outcomes database so that our physicians can evaluate and compare the effectiveness of various treatments, and ensure that diagnosis and treatment are continually evolving and improving.
Our department is proud to be the first in Nebraska to implement the American Orthopaedic Association’s Own The Bone™ Program. This important program aims to better identify, evaluate and treat patients that suffer from an osteoporosis or low bone density-related fragility fracture.
