July Highlight | Growth of Research: TRIA Woodbury & Registry Research
As TRIA grows, the TRIA Institute is growing alongside it. In late 2018, research expanded to our Woodbury location with Dr. Cooper and the STaR study, which follows the timing of surgical intervention and postoperative rehabilitation in patients with a multiligament knee injury. Now in 2019, we are excited to begin enrollment in the JUPITER registry study with Dr. Chambers and Dr. Cichanowski. JUPITER is a nationwide multi-site registry study following the treatment outcomes of patients with patellofemoral instability. We joined this registry study in December of 2017 and have enrolled approximately 60 patients to date in Bloomington.
JUPITER is 1 of 4 of our registry studies here at TRIA. The other registry studies include ROCK, which follows non-operative and operative outcomes of patients with Osteochondritis Dissecans lesions in the knee; Elbow OCD which follows non-operative and operative outcomes of patients with Osteochondritis Dissecans in the elbow; and ISAKOS which evaluates the influence of bony alignment on surgical outcomes after an MPFL reconstruction.
We hope that the knowledge gained from these registry studies will improve patient care in the future and look forward to further opportunities to grow research at Woodbury.
