The ORS Meniscus Research Section was launched in November 2015. The section continues to highlight the significant interest on the meniscus by providing meeting and online venues for presentation and discussion of the latest research on the meniscus.

Currently, the section represents over 90 ORS members from around the world including biologists, clinicians, engineers, orthopaedic surgeons, veterinarians, and more.

Our mission is to represent the voice of meniscus research and sciences within the ORS community and beyond, and advance meniscus research and related sciences to improve patient care through basic, translational and clinical research.
