LSU Integrated Musculoskeletal Biobank (LIMB)
The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Louisiana State University (LSU) Health – New Orleans is dedicated to providing exceptional patient care, facilitating high-quality training of residents and medical students, and engaging in innovative research. Our team includes clinical and research faculty, residents, and students who are interested in finding answers to today’s most pressing questions on orthopaedic diseases, refining the standard of care, and improving the outcomes of intervention strategies that combat health care disparities. We are constantly searching for novel approaches to better understand a broad range of orthopaedic conditions, therapies, and outcomes across the care continuum of our patient populations concurrent with implementation of individualized medical assessments. Considering the diversity of patients in our immediate region, one of the main goals of our research strategy is to investigate factors that fuel disparities in the outcome of both orthopaedic diseases and their treatment.
