Meniscus

ORS is committed to the advancement is meniscus research and its application to improvement of patient care by providing education, networking, consensus building, and the development of best practices.  It is our goal to build this international and multi-disciplinary community.  To show our commitment to the field we have created the ORS Meniscus Section that serves as a home for this vital research community.

While more than 700,000 meniscal surgeries are performed each year in the US alone, most involving a partial meniscectomy, meniscus-focused research has been under-represented. A concerted and collaborative effort focused on meniscal research is critical in order to make needed progress in this important area in patient healthcare. Menisci are extremely important for the integrity of the knee joint. As a fibrocartilage tissue, the meniscus provides for complex mechanical function during joint motion, including tensile stability, shock absorption, and lubrication.

We hope that you support our mission and goals and make the decision to be a long-term corporate partner, we have outlined our 2018 initiatives and make a commitment to help you to achieve your mission and goals to achieve international brand recognition as a leader in the field of meniscus research resulting in improved patient treatment and care.

ORS Spine Section 2018 Scientific Meeting & Awards

Friday, March 9, 2018
3:00 PM – 6:00 PM
New Orleans, Louisiana

Program Organizer: Sibylle Grad, PhD, AO Research Institute Davos

Symposium: Origins of Spine Related Pain

The symposium aims to review our current understanding of factors causing or contributing to painful spine symptoms. Furthermore, with the availability of advanced profiling technologies and study designs, new pathways of pain are being identified that may lead to novel diagnostic and therapeutic targets. A more in-depth understanding of pain origins will help basic and clinician scientists to design clinically relevant studies and medical doctors to treat pain symptoms of patients in a more precise and personalized manner.  Emphasis is put on the role of biomechanical imbalance as pain generator.

Invited speakers will discuss how locomotion and biomechanics play a role in specific pain generation. 

ORS 2018 Best Oral and Poster Presentation Awards

The ORS Spine Section will award three (3) Best Oral presentation awards and six (6) Best Poster presentation awards at the closing session of the ORS 2018 Annual Meeting

The most recent breakthroughs in research focusing on development of new therapies and on animal models with relevance to human spine pathology will be presented by recognized leaders in the field.

Session 1 – Development of Novel Therapeutic approaches

Session 1 – Preclinical and Clinical Translation, with assessment of pain as a key outcome.

Tendon disorders and injuries are common and lead to significant disability, pain, healthcare cost, and lost productivity. A wide range of injury mechanisms exist leading to tendinopathy or tendon rupture.

Despite the prevalence of tendon injuries and the well-appreciated spectrum of clinical challenges in their diagnosis and treatment, significant advancement in the field as a whole has arguably been hindered by an incomplete understanding of the fundamental biology of tendon development, signal transduction, mechanotransduction, and basic mechanisms underlying tendon pathogenesis and healing.

ORS and the ORS Tendon Research Section are committed to advancing tendon research worldwide at all levels from basic to clinical science.

ORS seeks long-term corporate partners to support our tendon initiatives.  Noted below are our 2018 initiatives.
