Orthopedic research foundation logoProviding better outcomes for our patients

Through the Orthopaedic Research Foundation (ORF), 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.

Founded in 1986, the ORF is an independent, not-for-profit dedicated to the advancement of science associated with musculoskeletal disorders. The physicians of OrthoIndy partner with the ORF to support their research and educational interests. The research staff facilitates and supervises both clinical trials and outcome studies. The ORF is instrumental in the preparation of abstracts, manuscripts, grant proposals, scientific posters and presentations, literature searches, local, regional and international conferences, outreach programs and multiple other research activities. In 2012, a learning lab was created at OrthoIndy Hospital where orthopedic surgical techniques can be advanced and equipment can be evaluated.
