Department of Orthopaedic Surgery
The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery has a national and international presence in orthopaedic research that is based on a broad representation of the varied subspecialties within this surgical field for treatment of problems in infants, adolescents, middle-aged, and older individuals. The goal of the orthopaedic research program is to develop fundamental knowledge to advance the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and diseases. Our faculty members are dedicated to advancing the field with a focus on “bench to bedside” innovations through sponsored research. The mentoring and development of Stanford residents, as potential clinical investigators, widens this fundamental mission of the department.
