Interventional Orthopedics Foundation

The Interventional Orthopedics Foundation was created as a not-for-profit (501) C (3) organization whose primary function is to effectively promote, support, develop and encourage research and education concerning the growing field of interventional orthopedics.

The Foundation is additionally committed to furthering the clinical and laboratory science, tools, and techniques that serve as the foundation for the field, which includes regenerative medicine and other modalities to allow a broader spectrum of orthopedic procedures to be performed less invasively through percutaneous rather than surgical options.

It is our goal to fund collaborations that will accelerate the development and availability of stem cell therapies with the greatest potential for immediate impact.

Initiatives include:

  • Provide education and generate awareness about interventional orthopedics to the public.
  • Discover, measure and analyze clinical outcomes that will allow physicians to determine the best practices in interventional orthopedics as well as the standardization of autologous biologics procedures so that outcomes can be accurately measured and compared.
  • Promote research and awareness on innovations in regenerative medicine to treat orthopedic injuries and relieve pain through stem cell research and therapies.
    • Annual Interventional Orthopedic Symposium and Conference focusing on stem cell research which is expected to play a key role in the future of orthopedic medicine.
      • The Conference seeks to advance the field of interventional orthopedic regenerative medicine and healthcare innovation through the sharing of scientific discoveries, best practices and business models.
    • Supports collaboration between researchers, clinicians, academia and industry in the effort to move promising research into therapies for people in need.
  • Maintain an independent, not-for-profit registry database designed to store comprehensive data about stem cell procedures.
  • Produce the evidence needed to establish treatment guidelines for the optimal care of the Wounded Warrior and ultimately improve the clinical, functional and quality of life outcomes of both service members and civilians who sustain high energy trauma to the extremities.
  • Provide a Scholarship Funding Program commitment by the Interventional Orthopedics Foundation to recognize and support promising young clinicians within 2 years of completing their training and those looking to extend their training specifically in the area of interventional orthopedics. Awards will be made to promising clinicians in Sports Medicine, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Interventional Pain Anesthesia.
