OREF supports independent, peer-reviewed musculoskeletal research
seeking clinically relevant advancements that orthopaedic surgeons can apply in daily practice to help patients enjoy more of life.
All OREF research grant and award recipients are selected through OREF's independent, peer-review process, which is modeled on the process used by the National Institutes of Health.
Academic Year 2013 - 2014

Supracondylar Femur Fractures after TKA: Comparison of Modern Retrograde IM Nails vs. Periarticular Locked Plates
Resident Research Symposia give orthopaedic residents at area training programs an opportunity to present research papers and posters to a panel of experienced investigators and clinicians. Panels comprising established orthopaedic investigators critique and rank the work, and top presenters are acknowledged. Past participants—residents, panelists, and mentoring attending physicians—have told us these sessions are challenging, rewarding, and fun.
