Orthopaedic research


Mater Orthopaedic Surgeons are committed to research and clinical innovation. There are two groups currently undertaking numerous research projects: North Sydney Orthopaedic Research Group (NSORG) and Australian Institute of Musculo-skeletal Research (AIMS).

North Sydney Orthopaedic Research Group

The group has produced exceptional quality award winning research that has been presented and published nationally and internationally. The group is currently collaborating with the Mater Hospital on the Mater Orthopaedic Outcomes Registry (MOOR) project, which systematically monitors the outcomes of joint arthroplasty (replacement) to ensure that patients are receiving the best and most current standard of care.

A recent research initiative, the Mater Accelerated Recovery Strategy (MARS), has reduced the time spent in hospital and enables a faster return to home and normal activities for selected patients after joint replacement.

Australian Institute of Musculo-Skeletal Research

AIMS undertakes clinical research into Musculo-Skeletal disorders and both sponsor and administrate high quality Post Graduate Sub-specialty Fellowship training programmes. Since its inception, the programme has trained hundreds of young surgeons from around the world, gaining an impressive national and international reputation for the quality of its training.
