Multidisciplinary Clinical Research Group on Musculoskeletal Pathology, Fragility and Pain Management

Our research group is clinical and multidisciplinary to promote patient-centered medicine encompassing diverse and complementary visions of musculoskeletal pathology.

It is composed of medical health personnel, nurses, and physiotherapists from different levels of care and two hospitals in the same territory but with differentiated patient and pathology profiles.

The doctors come from training in various specialties related to a greater or lesser extent with musculoskeletal pathology such as Orthopedic Surgery, Geriatrics, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation or the Pain Clinic, forming 8 strongly interrelated subgroups:

  1. Spine
  2. Pain
  3. Rehabilitation
  4. Traumatology
  5. Prosthetics
  6. Upper limb
  7. Ortho-geriatrics and Fragility
  8. Neurosurgery

with many common projects and others more specific

The work of our group focuses on four main lines of research:

  1. Aspects related to perioperative surgery in Orthopaedic Surgery and Traumatology.
  2. Clinical measurement of treatment, surgical, semi-invasive and non-invasive results.
  3. Evaluation of the repercussions of fragility, especially in the hospital setting in relation to hip fractures.
  4. Risk assessment through big data analysis systems / Machine learning.
