Joint Arthroplasty Group

Research focused on improving our understanding of joint replacement biomechanics; the development of new approaches to improve surgical reconstruction of joints; the development of new approaches/devices that advance the long-term survival or joint replacement; and clinical studies of joint replacement and rehabilitation.
