What makes muscles, joints, and bones work together and what makes them fail? How far can you push yourself and when must you stop? These are the questions that drive the doctors and scientists at Congress Medical Foundation to develop and test new and better treatments for everyone – from the individual hoping simply to live pain-free to top athletes striving to improve their performance. While the Doctors at Congress Orthopaedic Associates push themselves to find exciting, effective new directions for orthopaedics, they educate future leaders in their specialty directly and through the Congress Medical Foundation’s fellowship and visiting scholars program.
The Congress Medical Foundation was established in 2000, soon after Congress Orthopaedic Associates began their sports-medicine fellowship program. Over the last twenty years, the foundation has been integral in the training of 20 orthopaedic sports medicine fellows, and their work has resulted in 171 scientific presentations at the local, regional, national, and international levels, 49 peer-reviewed articles, and eight book chapters.
In October 2018 the CMF was proud to be joined by Thay Q, Lee Ph.D, the world’s leading scientist in orthopaedic biomechanics. Dr. Lee has helped not only define our field, but also concretize the future directions for orthopaedic surgeons. Congress Medical Foundation has built a state-of-the-art biomechanics laboratory to further his groundbreaking research.
As a nonprofit research and education organization, the Congress Medical Foundation relies upon the generosity of individual donors, foundations, and corporations to continue pursuing these important breakthroughs in research as well as education and public outreach. Your generous gift of financial support will help us to lead the way in this important field.
