Your generosity enables the Department of Orthopaedics to continue to serve as a leader in medical excellence, giving those with even the most complex medical conditions reason for hope.

URMC Orthopaedics is the largest and most comprehensive orthopaedic group in the Rochester, NY nine-county region. URMC Orthopaedics combines the best expertise, service, and comprehensive care for its patients. In addition to having their own clinical practices, our doctors are all academic faculty of the Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation at the University of Rochester Medical Center; so they don't just use the latest methods, they develop them.

The department is currently ranked first in orthopaedic research nationally by the National Institutes of Health. It is the only orthopaedic department in the United States that is designated as a Center for Research Translation, with a $7.8 million initiative to take many promising orthopaedic discoveries from the laboratory bench to the bedside. The creation of the Center for Musculoskeletal Research in 2000 formalized a 25-year history of multidisciplinary, comprehensive research for bettering musculoskeletal health for the patients of today and tomorrow.
