Improving patient care through innovative research
Using cutting-edge research to define tomorrow's treatment methods.
Advances in diagnosis, care, and prevention of diseases come from years of careful scientific research. The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation is building a world-class research program focusing on the areas of musculoskeletal diseases, molecular biology and genetics, development of less invasive surgical techniques and biomedical engineering, especially knee implant simulation and testing and computer-aided and robotic surgery.
As a result of the innovative research being done here, department researchers are attracting an increasing amount of external and international funding and acclaim, and have presented their results at prestigious national and international scientific and academic conferences.
