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.
Researchers have identified a possible drug-based therapy for heterotopic ossification prevention and have tested it in experimental models of the disease.
Our orthopedic clinical research evaluates treatments including spine deformities, bone tumors, trauma, sports medicine and a full range of orthopedic abnormalities.
Advanced imaging and motion analysis are powerful tools for CHOP orthopedic physicians and researchers treating complex disorders, allowing them to visualize the spine and lower extremities from all angles, as a 3D model, and in motion.
Our orthopedic researchers combine laboratory and clinical research to create novel therapies that combine surgical and biologic tools.
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.
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.
Clinicians at the Sports Medicine and Performance Center are actively involved in more than 30 current research projects and clinical trials.
