The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery is supported by funds from private philanthropy, government and institutional grants and patient service revenue. While every source of funding is important, private philanthropic support is especially vital to the success of our department. Over the years, the generosity of alumni, friends and patients has enabled the department to attract new physicians and scientists, educate the future leaders of orthopaedics and initiate important research projects that have the potential to contribute scientific breakthroughs.

We invite your partnership in helping us achieve our research and training aspirations. Your support enables us to accelerate research, acquire vital laboratory equipment and train young investigators. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of people suffering from muscular-skeletal disorders.

For your convenience, a number of giving options are available. These include outright gifts, appreciated assets such as securities and pledges payable over a three- to five-year period.
