Hereditary Multiple Exostoses Research

Researchers have created experimental models of hereditary multiple exostoses to study how exostoses form and grow, and are devising drug- and gene-based therapies to prevent exostosis formation. 

Orthopedic Clinical Research

Our orthopedic clinical research evaluates treatments including spine deformities, bone tumors, trauma, sports medicine and a full range of orthopedic abnormalities.

Orthopedic Research

Our orthopedic researchers combine laboratory and clinical research to create novel therapies that combine surgical and biologic tools.

Orthopedics Publications

Physicians and researchers from the Division of Orthopedics at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia are actively researching congenital and acquired orthopedic conditions that affect children, teens and young adults. They hope to better understand the causes of certain disorders, uncover new treatments, refine supportive therapies, and improve the quality of life for all children with conditions that affect their bones, muscles and joints.

Research: Tendon/Ligament Healing

Tendons and ligaments have limited repair capacity. Once damaged, tendons and ligaments undergo changes that cause substantial clinical problems including pain, swelling and local stiffness.

Sports Medicine Research

Clinicians at the Sports Medicine and Performance Center are actively involved in more than 30 current research projects and clinical trials.

Synovial Joint Formation Research
