Bone and tissue regrowth is a way for patients to experience complete recovery from previously debilitating conditions such as arthritis, cancer, osteoporosis and bone fractures. The Musculoskeletal Research Focus Area at NEOMED is focused on developing these re-growth processes to address the needs of our aging population.
Arthritis is responsible for nearly 1 million hospitalizations per year.
Nearly half of all Americans over the age of 65 suffer from arthritis.
One in two women over the age of 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis.
