The South Campus Research Unit for Bone and Soft-Tissue (SCRUBS) is group of passionate orthopaedic surgeons and research personnel dedicated to advancing orthopaedic research on an international scale. We collaborate with other medical centres and universities to improve patients’ overall health care experience.
SCRUBS conducts high-quality research to prevent and understand orthopaedic injuries with the help of hundreds of patient volunteers. We strive to ensure that all orthopaedic care is based on the best available scientific evidence so treatment is delivered quickly, and recovery is faster, better and less painful.
Our researchers tackle questions that investigate not only the surgery that patients receive, but also the psychological, socioeconomic, and physical aspects of patient care. We are constantly growing and adapting, exploring all aspects of orthopaedic treatment, including areas under-represented and overlooked in research.
SCRUBS is dedicated to advancing medical care in a way that allows those affected by musculoskeletal injuries to get back to what they love.
