- Orthopaedic & Neurosurgery Specialists Foundation

The Arthroscopy, Surgical Skills and Biomechanical Laboratory

The ONS Foundation laboratory has been designed to be a state-of-the-art facility for conducting research and for teaching medical students and professionals. The half million dollar facility, located on the lower level of the medical offices of ONS at 6 Greenwich Office Park on Valley Drive, makes it possible for surgeons to perform medical research for the study and development of arthroscopic surgical techniques, and to teach arthroscopic skills to medical students and surgeons.

ONS Foundation surgeons and teaching physicians from across the country will conduct professional programs year round for interested surgeons to receive training on various arthroscopic techniques. Such programs serve to encourage young arthroscopists, foster mutual exchange among physicians practicing arthroscopy while focusing on practical issues in arthroscopic procedure and promotion of quality control in such surgeries.
 

 

 
Work in the lab gets underway in late spring 2012, when a team of surgeons from Germany arrives to study sports injuries with Dr. Sethi, shoulder specialist Dr. Seth Miller and hip arthroscopy expert Dr. Tim Greene. A group of American surgeons will study total ankle replacement and another group of surgeons from China will study techniques in knee arthroscopy.
 

 

During the summer, 2012, seven interns from universities around the country, including Columbia, Lehigh, Princeton, and Villanova, will work in the lab on a variety of research projects.

Funds to build the Arthroscopy, Surgical Skills and Biomechanical Laboratory were raised through fundraising events on behalf of the ONS Foundation, Foundation Board member Milton Sender, Greenwich Hospital, and Leon Lowenstein Foundation, Inc. in behalf of Joanna B. and Ken Schulman.
