The Loma Linda University Orthopaedic team is actively involved in researching diseases and disorders of the bones, joints, muscles, cartilage, tendons and ligaments. Staying on the leading-edge of research to discover new ways to diagnose and treat orthopaedic conditions helps us give our patients the best treatment options available. 

Published Research

  • “The Opportunity Awaits to Lead Orthopaedic Telehealth Innovation: AOA Critical Issues” - Principally, telehealth is a way of providing a service rather than a type of service. It is about patient care, not data care.
  • “Outcomes After Distal Radius Fracture Treatment With Percutaneous Wire Versus Plate Fixation: Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials” - It was concluded that Kirschner wire fixation, which may be associated with lower costs, is associated with similar clinical and radiographic outcomes when compared with volar plate fixation, although wire fixation is associated with higher superficial infection risk.
