Orthopaedic Research Center

The Orthopaedic Research Center at Colorado State University is known worldwide for joint problem prevention and healing research in horses, with complementary work in human athletes. The mission of our program is to investigate the cause, diagnosis, and treatment of musculoskeletal problems for the betterment of the horse and the benefit of humans. We also are at the forefront of developing novel stem cell therapies that offer exciting treatment options for musculoskeletal disease and injury.

According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, musculoskeletal impairment affects more than one in four Americans, often leading to loss of quality of life. Musculoskeletal impairment is the most common cause of loss of use in horses, and, in some cases, can lead to catastrophic injury. The need for continued improvement in the care of musculoskeletal impairment in both horses and humans is critical.

Your gift to the ORC will advance our research program, support innovation in clinical treatments and regenerative therapies, and, through helping the horse, help people with orthopaedic challenges as well. If you have any questions about making a gift to the Orthopaedic Research Center, or other giving opportunities that support the ORC, please contact us at (970) 491-7446. Thank you!
