• Orthopaedics Research

    The division’s research efforts have evolved toward an integrated approach between basic science and clinical practice.  Our work includes:

    • Spine research: We are improving scoliosis care in children, studying the mechanobiology of growth, developing innovative treatment methods and leading the way in endoscopic spinal surgery.
    • Clinical research: We are focusing on four broad areas: growth plate development, sports medicine, limb deformity and trauma.
    • Outcomes research: We are studying process improvement, treatment innovation, patient- and family-centered care and the practice of evidence-based medicine.

    The primary clinical focus of the Division of Orthopaedics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is the exceptional care of children with musculoskeletal conditions.
