Research Fields

Focused objectives

New and existing concepts and treatment methods are researched and compared thoroughly. The valuable results and outcomes yielded by this process are shared through publications and education programs.

Our research is concentrated on clinical and translational research focusing on applications and methods rather than on the development of implants and instruments.

To obtain the highest possible competence in selected research areas with available resources, AOTrauma focuses on two main research areas: Bone Infection and Fixation in Osteoporotic Bone.​​​​

​​CPP Bone Infection

AOTrauma aims to discover solutions to the pressing and costly clinical problem of Bone Infection. Explore our targeted Clinical Priority Program activities and projects to expand clinical knowledge in this field.

​CPP Fixation in Osteoporotic Bone

Through close collaboration, a network of researchers investigates osteoporosis and methods to improve fracture care in mechanically poor bone. Explore the activities and projects within Fixation in Osteoporotic Bone.
