Clinical and Surgical Study Groups for Developing and Testing Total Joint Replacement Implants and Procedures

JISRF sponsors clinical / surgical study groups that are dedicated to developing, testing and promoting new and improved total joint replacement implants, instruments, materials and protocols. The goal of this focus is to improve the quality of life, reduce pain, improve function and increase the longevity of reconstructive surgery for its patients.

The Foundation is routinely involved in a range of activities from sponsoring educational seminars, mechanical testing, finite element analysis, and micromotion analysis of implants to the issuance of research and educational grants.

The Foundation has facilitated the following study groups
