Adult Reconstruction Research

At the Forefront of Orthopedic Research

Adult Reconstruction ResearchAs part of an academic medical center, our physicians are at the forefront of orthopedic research efforts. They're not only experienced surgeons, they're leading the way to make hip and knee replacements safer and more effective. 

Our doctors work closely with other research faculty to explore and search for ways to improve the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of orthopedic injury, disease, and deformity.
