Life Sciences Innovation Center
About Innovation Center
HSS has been a pioneer in the advancement of musculoskeletal technologies for decades. By leveraging biomedical sciences and the resources available at the #1-ranked hospital for orthopedics in the nation, our surgeons, physicians, and scientists have been able to develop novel products and platforms that deliver more effective, less invasive, and less costly care.
The HSS life sciences innovations are primarily developed here either by HSS scientists focusing on ideas rooted in basic research and discovery, or by HSS clinicians developing ideas derived from clinical practice. Additionally, HSS partners with industry to develop new technologies. Both are focused on identifying mechanisms underlying musculoskeletal and autoimmune conditions, and discovering and developing effective approaches for prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of orthopedic and rheumatic diseases. Our life sciences technologies include: implants and devices; therapeutics, biologics, biomarkers, and diagnostics; and instruments and hardware.
