UTOSM is currently running randomized trials focused on ACL reconstruction, massive rotator cuff tears, hip arthroscopy, as well as the use of Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC) for the treatment of shoulder osteoarthritis. UTOSM is also conducting a series of studies with regards to cartilage implantation, revision ACL reconstruction, the competency of sports medicine fellows, as well as aspects of surgical training.
At WCH, UTOSM runs one of Canada’s largest training programs for orthopaedic surgeons wishing to train in sports medicine and arthroscopy. Up to eight surgeons from Canada and across the world are undertaking fellowship training each year at WCH, allowing them to develop skills that will benefit thousands of patients.
