Home » Orthopaedic Research
- Musculoskeletal conditions are the #1 cause of disability, worldwide?
- Approximately one in five adults has doctor-diagnosed arthritis?
- One in seven Americans has a muscular or skeletal disorder?
- A fracture requiring orthopaedic treatment occurs about every 14 seconds?
The Campbell Foundation is dedicated to discovery and innovation through research. We rely on financial donations and grants to support our work.
We believe strongly in the value of sharing the results of our work with our peers so that patients everywhere will benefit from our science.
This listing documents recent publications from our faculty and staff.
Clinical (patient-centered) research evaluates the effectiveness and safety of procedures, treatments, and devices for patients with musculoskeletal disorders. Campbell Clinic’s large patient base makes it a good site for recruiting participants in clinical trials, conducted by our clinician scientists.
Our physicians and scientists are constantly seeking to better understand why things happen clinically, including the outcomes of orthopaedic interventions. Our clinical research often begins with a question or observation that we need to better understand. Then, through our research, we believe strongly in sharing our findings and results in order to provide better results for patients everywhere.
Basic Science Research
Basic science research is conducted in collaboration with the scientists at the University of Tennessee-Campbell Clinic Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, which is part of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, Tennessee.
Basic science research focuses in two areas: the pathological basis for orthopaedic problems (understanding why musculoskeletal problems occur), and therapeutic approaches to orthopaedic problems (determining what can be done about it).
Research areas include: Arthritis, Cartilage Regeneration, Implants, Biomaterials, Orthobiologics, and Cellular Therapies.
Enhancing quality of life through the science of orthopaedic medicine is The Campbell Foundation's mission. Read stories about research conducted by Campbell physician-scientists. More»
