Our team of specialists have helped lead innovation and patient care in orthopaedics for many years. Our combined contributions to the field of orthopaedic research are listed below.
There are a number of International and local research trials that are ongoing in both upper and lower limb research and each surgeon can provide information on these trials and invite patients to participate if they wish to be part of a research study.
All trials have received approval from the Calvary Health Care Ethics Committee Adelaide.
Current trials can be viewed on the following websites:
