Research is a very important component of the fellowship. The Beaumont Research Institute provides facilities and support personnel, with clinical supervisory support available through the department faculty.
Fellow research has been presented at numerous national and international meetings and also has been published in orthopedic peer-reviewed journals.
There are currently 4-IDE (Investigational Device Exemption) trials and over 15 other clinical trials. These include a full spectrum from minimally invasive surgery, artificial disc replacement, biologics and biomaterials, neuromodulation and others. Additionally, there is a humanitarian use devices study and a pre-operative planning aide study for difficult tumor resections as well as non-fusion options for scoliosis.
