The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery not only offers superb clinical care, but is also on the forefront of developing cutting-edge therapies and procedures to benefit our patients.

Our physicians are motivated to make groundbreaking discoveries and advancements in their field in both basic and clinical research — from testing novel ideas in the laboratory to translating breakthrough approaches into direct patient care.

Research on total hip, joint, and knee replacements, wrist fractures, shoulder and elbow disorders, joint arthroplasty, spine disorders and cutting-edge sports medicine investigations happen right here at our medical center and are often quickly implemented from bench to bedside.
