Plancher Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine





The Orthopaedic Foundation was created as a not-for-profit (501) C (3) organization whose primary function is to effectively promote, support, develop and encourage research and education concerning minimally invasive orthopaedic surgery and advancements in musculoskeletal diseases. The Foundation is additionally committed to initiatives that educate individuals of all ages who are passionate about a healthy and active lifestyle and engage in self directed practices to maintain that lifestyle. The aim of the Foundation is to discover new modalities for the treatment of orthopaedic injuries and musculoskeletal disease, to promote injury prevention, and to explore minimally invasive treatments that guarantee shorter recovery time and faster return to daily activities.

Attaining our goals: A BioSkills Laboratory facility was included in the design of the Orthopaedic Foundation for Active Lifestyles site. This laboratory contains six dry/wet stations and one pro-session area that allow surgeons, physicians and health care professionals to experience hands-on training. The BioSkills Laboratory is electronically capable of transmitting educational seminars and anatomy workshops to physicians, researchers and fellows participating off site at teaching hospitals and universities -- literally throughout the world.

Community Outreach has always been a strong focus of the Orthopaedic Foundation's mission. Offering classes to high school science students in our lecture area and Bio Skills lab has raised the level of these students' enthusiasm for and understanding of the science of orthopaedics. Lecture series for the general public on sports and activity injury prevention, repair and rehabilitation for osteoporosis and osteoarthritis has underscored the Foundation's commitment to allowing people of all ages to "stay in the game".

A Medical / Research Fellowship is offered through the Orthopaedic Foundation each year. This fellowship is designed to offer an extensive clinical and research experience in ligament reconstruction of the knee, shoulder, and elbow. This is an active and exciting clinical experience, achieved through a wide spectrum of operative cases.

Numerous Clinical Trials are conducted each year under the auspices of the Orthopaedic Foundation for Active Lifestyles. These trials allow the Foundation to offer to the general public information about the latest trends and access to health care professionals on topics including musculoskeletal disease treatment, pain management and the like.

Guiding our Steps:
The Orthopaedic Foundation is guided by a talented and diverse Board of Directors who take seriously our education and research mission, and who fully believe in "Staying in the Game…for Life!" Outreach to major corporations who work in orthopaedic and sports medicine, contact with organizations who provide educational support to the general public, and engagement of individuals who believe in a healthy, active lifestyle will continue to be defined by the Board as our areas of focus and excellence.

For additional information, contact Stephanie Petterson, PhD at 203-869-2002 ext 402 or SPetterson@ofals.org.
