Providing better outcomes for our patients

Through the Orthopaedic Research Foundation, OrthoIndy physicians participate in a number of studies to help provide the best surgical outcomes for their patients. Results from these studies are used to develop new surgical devices, evaluate new medications, improve materials and systems and improve surgical procedures.
