Orthopedic Research and Education
While pushing for excellence in clinical care, the Jefferson team is also focused on basic science that is leading to a better understanding of the biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system and the genetic roots of disease, among other things. One overarching research goal is to develop treatments that could be “individualized” to meet each patient’s particular needs.
