Our Department is unique in New Zealand. Surgical and medical components of musculoskeletal diseases and injuries are combined into one discipline utilising both academic and service personnel.
A vibrant research culture exists in the Department. We are involved in many projects primarily in the areas of clinical outcomes, cartilage regeneration, tissue engineering, joint arthroplasty, rehabilitation, bioengineering and function of tetraplegic patients.
We deliver comprehensive teaching of musculoskeletal disorders and pain management to undergraduate and postgraduate students.
