In addition to excellence in clinical care, we are also committed to excellence in research related to the treatment of hip and knee disease. Excellence and achievement in research will lead to improved patient care in the future, and therefore we have developed a very strong research team to investigate various aspects of hip and knee disease. The following page introduces our research staff, on-going clinical research projects and our multi-center clinical research study group. We have established the Curing Hip Disease Fund to provide a mechanism for donations and support of our on-going research initiatives. I hope the following information is helpful in understanding our research program. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any additional questions regarding this program.
