Our team offers a large number of surgical models for orthopaedic intervention research. With more than half of people 50 or older have at least one musculoskeletal disorder, and studies peg the direct and indirect cost of such disorders at $950 billion annually in the U.S.
Our state-of-the-art facilities and years of experience in this field allow us to provide cost-effective solutions for all of your orthopaedic intervention preclinical study needs. We offer the following models and procedures for those developing new drugs and procedures for all areas of orthopaedic intervention:
- Arthroplasty (hip, knee) and other types of articular cartilage repair
- Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repair/meniscectomy
- Artificial meniscus
- Reconstruction/fixation of other ligaments and tendons
- Artificial ligaments and tendons
Bone Defect Models
- Osteotomy of femur, tibia and radius
- Critical size defect models in the calvarium, tibia, fibula, femur, radius and ulna
Spinal Fusion Models
In addition to its models, Preclinical Translational Services can help you rapidly analyze the results of your orthopedic interventions. We have a state-of-the-art pathology laboratory, which provides histological and histomorphometric analyses, and a biomechanics laboratory that can provide torsional testing of bone and joint interventions.
