Clinical Research

Current clinical research topics

  • Orthogeriatrics including treatment of fragility fractures and development of treatment pathways
  • Research on health care provision and quality
  • Bone infection, reconstruction and translational tissue engineering
  • Cartilage research and translational tissue engineering
  • Upper Extremity Trauma: evaluation of treatment pathways (e.g. proximal humeral fracture of the elderly) and mid- and long-term results
  • Upper Extremity Trauma: evaluation of image based and score based decision criteria for different treatment options (e.g. proximal humeral fracture, distal radial fracture)
  • Outcome and complications after arthroscopic rotator cuff repair and total shoulder arthroplasty
