Wisconsin Bone and Joint is committed to providing cutting edge treatment to our patients. We conduct clinical research so that we can better understand the injuries we treat and provide effective care for our patients. We have published our research in multiple journals and presented our work at national meetings to other orthopedic surgeons. We strive to remain on the forefront of medical care.
