Considering the high prevalence of musculoskeletal diseases as a leading cause of physical disability worldwide, our research line aims to investigate the clinical and epidemiological aspects of musculoskeletal disorders. Our group includes surgeons from various orthopedic subspecialties with an interest in developing clinical and translational research focused on the investigation and refinement of diagnostic, clinical and surgical treatment, and new regenerative therapies in the field of orthopedics and traumatology. I am responsible for coordinating the Medical Residency in Orthopedics and Traumatology and also for the Postgraduate Program in Exercise and Sports Medicine at IDOR in Rio de Janeiro.
