Onderzoek en publicaties

De onderzoekers van het kenniscentrum zorgen dat de orthopedische chirurgen van het St. Anna ziekenhuis optimaal zijn geïnformeerd over de nieuwste wetenschappelijke inzichten. De nieuwe kennis die het St. Anna Ziekenhuis zo opdoet met wetenschappelijk onderzoek, wordt  ook met collega's in Nederland en daarbuiten gedeeld. Daarvoor publiceren de onderzoekers en orthopeden met regelmaat in medische vakbladen en presenteren ze de resultaten van studies op wetenschappelijke congressen. Hieronder vind u een overzicht.
