Our pioneering physicians and researchers are dedicated to doing everything possible for our patients while helping to develop and apply the most advanced treatments for orthopaedic conditions.  

Customized Treatment for Each Patient

Our orthopaedic surgeons provide the exceptional clinical care that you expect from a world-renowned medical institution, but we also approach care for each patient on an individual level across the entire spectrum of orthopaedic diseases and conditions.

We spend extra time with you to understand and solve the orthopaedic problem that has put your life on pause. We work with you to understand your goals and tailor the treatment approach to best address your needs. We want to get you better as quickly as possible, so you can get home and back to doing the things you love.        

Advanced Medical Care Based on Cutting-edge Research

At the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, outstanding clinical and basic research forms the foundation of our orthopaedic care. As a center of innovation, we are constantly translating new findings from clinical and basic research into new treatment options for bone and joint health, including joint replacement and repair surgeries. 

Our patients benefit from the research conducted at the world-renowned Orthopaedic Research Laboratories, where our orthopaedic surgeons and researchers develop new treatment options for patients with joint conditions. The Musculoskeletal Research Center (MSK) at the Brigham Research Institute (BRI) is also focused on cross-collaborative research that focuses on bones, joints, muscles and the disorders that affect them.
