Research

patient success stories meet our doctors request an appointment

The Center for Spinal Disorders in partnership with the Spine Education and Research Institute (SERI) is focused on clinical research toward musculoskeletal problems and care.  This integrated partnership provides access to substantial expertise and clinical data to support orthopaedic research.  Our goal is to conduct clinical research that will translate to improvements in patient care and outcomes.  Each research project undergoes a formal review by SERI’s community based Board of Directors and review by an outside Institutional Review Board, if required.
