Corewell Health is the new name for Beaumont.


The Beaumont Orthopedic Research department defines broad based research ranging from basic science studies to clinical trials for FDA submission.

We strive to perform research that will improve surgical procedures and patient outcomes. In order to achieve these improvements, we work in partnership with the orthopedic surgery department's attending surgeons, residents, and fellows to address all subspecialties of orthopedic surgery including, but not limited to:

  • Spine
  • Sports Medicine
  • Joint Reconstruction
  • Trauma

Clinical research is a cooperative effort between our physicians, laboratory researchers and members of the Surgery Clinical Trials Office (SCTO). The SCTO manages clinical research in several of the surgical subspecialties and endows orthopedic surgery with the ability to run large-scale projects involving human subjects. These studies involve the use of autologous stem cells in fracture healing, repair of articular cartilage injuries, reverse total shoulder arthroplasty, growth factors for promoting spine fusion and intervertebral disc arthroplasty.
