Excellence in orthopaedic research

The Department of Orthopaedics conducts both clinical and basic science research focused on the prevention and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and infections. Our programs include investigations into new antibiotics, new implants designed to facilitate healing, treatments for osteoarthritis, biomechanical testing and many others.

Musculoskeletal health is a field that encompasses many different types of experts and specialists. Our department collaborates with other researchers in other disciplines across The Ohio State University including veterinary medicine, biomedical engineering and mechanical engineering. We also work closely with research colleagues in other medical specialties like plastic surgery, infectious diseases, rehabilitation, radiology and neurological surgery.
