Our Orthopaedic Research program began in 2003 and has thrived over the past 16 years, achieving many meaningful goals and milestones. Thanks to donations from our community, we constructed the Hip and Knee Institute in 2009 to house our world-class research program, creating a centre of capability and expertise that is unmatched elsewhere in the world. Over the past 16 years, our research has stretched from the benchtop to the bedside and beyond.
On the benchtop, our engineering staff and machines have evaluated dozens of joint replacement devices for quality and safety before being used in the clinic. At the bedside, our clinical staff and systems have monitored patient well-being and joint replacement success through innovative, proven means. Chasing what’s next, our scientific staff and equipment have assessed joint replacement failures, pinpointing the root cause for future devices to learn from and avoid.
The Concordia Hip and Knee Institute and the Orthopaedic Research program were built by Manitobans to be like no other.
