improving Orthopaedic health & mobility through research

Through our core mission of supporting and developing new orthopaedic investigators, OREF strives to make a positive impact on patient health and mobility by providing investigators with the resources they need to pursue research that may lead to new and better options for treating patients.

We also strongly believe that supporting research across all of orthopaedics is critical to the health of our specialty. In just the past six years, OREF has funded studies addressing more than a dozen different subspecialties, including those shown below.
