Oswestry Keele Orthopaedic Research group

The research group works in 3 main clinical areas treating patients with either joint injury or degeneration such as osteoarthritis, inflammatory arthritis or those with spinal problems in the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital, Oswestry. Two departments here address problems in the spine: the Centre for Spinal Disorders (including back pain and spinal deformities) and the Midlands Centre for Spinal Injuries.

Funding has been from many sources, including MRC, EPSRC, BBSRC, EU, the Oswestry Institute of Orthopaedics, the RJAH Hospital Charitable Fund and several Medical Research Charities including Versus Arthritis.
