The Department of Orthopedics and Physical Rehabilitation, along with the Division of Rheumatology, form the renowned UMMS/UMMHC Musculoskeletal Center of Excellence. The Center focuses on clinical care and research for the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal disorders. Patients have access to preventive, diagnostic, treatment and rehabilitation services for musculoskeletal injuries and disorders. This includes a direct link to the advanced, highly specialized services located on the three UMMS/UMMHC campuses. This collection showcases journal articles and other publicationswritten by faculty and researchers of the Department of Orthopedics and Physical Rehabilitation.
