Conducting research to benefit our patients and advance clinical practices

Research Studies & Publications

Our physicians, physical therapists, and research team have been actively engaged in clinical research for over 20 years. We are dedicated to conducting research and quality improvement studies which provide benefits to our patients and advance clinical practice. We are widely published in the areas of sports medicine, arthroscopy, arthroplasty and patient-reported outcomes.

TCO is committed to furthering our understanding of the diagnosis and treatment of orthopedics and sports-related injuries. This is being accomplished through a multidisciplinary approach that includes thought leaders on musculoskeletal research, outcomes, clinical research, basic science, biomechanics, rehabilitation and performance.
