Research Activity

The Research Team at the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Women's and Children's Hospital comprises orthopaedic surgeons, doctors-in-training, medical and research/higher degree students. It is supported by a Clinical Research Manager and Research Scientist.

The Department has a long track record of internationally recognised research activity and publications including basic science and clinical research investigating a range of paediatric musculoskeletal conditions.

Current areas of interest for the Research Team at the WCH Department of Orthopaedics include paediatric musculoskeletal infections, the management of congenital and developmental musculoskeletal deformities such as scoliosis, hip dysplasia and lower limb deformity, and paediatric trauma. The Department has close links with the University of Adelaide, including the Centre for Orthopaedic and Trauma Research.

Clinical research aims to provide benchmarks for clinical audit and quality management issues to be undertaken in a structured manner. The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery has a high clinical workload, which enhances the opportunities for organised clinical orthopaedic research.
