The Loma Linda University Orthopedic 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 orthopedic conditions helps us give our patients the best treatment options available. 

Published Research
