The quality of medical treatments is based of the experience of the doctor as well as on the results of medical research, studies and laboratory tests. Biomechanical properties of eg the joint cartilage can be tested to utmost precision. New implants run through a vigorous simulation program. Clinical studies reveal the success rate of the treatment with new techniques.

The participation in clinical trials enables our patients to benefit from the latest develpoments in biologic joint care. Find out more about ongoing studies.
