Center for Orthopaedic Injury Research & Innovation
Where Evidence and Researchers Grow
More than five million Americans sustain an extremity fracture each year, one million of whom require surgical treatment. These common injuries often cause long-term functional impairment, decreased quality of life, and financial hardship.
Addressing the immense public health burden of orthopaedic injuries, the Center for Orthopaedic Injury Research & Innovation (COIRI) is dedicated to improving the infrastructure of the orthopaedic trauma clinical research community. The COIRI focuses on providing professional and patient-derived resources for developing future clinical projects and improving patient care.
Our ultimate goal is to support a research community committed to reducing perioperative complications, improving fracture healing, and accelerating functional recovery after extremity fracture surgery.
