Innovation

The use of state-of-the-art technology and development of expertise in minimally invasive orthopedic procedures for joint (arthroplasty), sports and spine surgery has resulted in new patentable technology, and in the publication of numerous articles and reviews.

Strong collaboration between Orthopedics and Family and Sports medicine specialists to address the care and prioritization of patients has improved the service. This innovative model of patient care has been influential among other clinical specialties and institutions.
