Medacta made a donation to the Orthopaedic Research and Education Fund to support future researcher endeavors and clinical trials.
Medacta agreed to match every resident gift dollar-for-dollar over the next five years. The funds will support OREF in offering unique opportunities and initiatives to improve surgical outcomes.
"Furthering surgical research and education has been a focus for Medacta since inception and we believe its one of the most crucial ways to drive new solutions, improve patient safety and reduce the cost of orthopedic care and recovery," said Francesco Siccardi, executive vice president of Medacta International. "Medacta is pleased to support OREF and further grant opportunities that enhance resident and fellowship training and advance the newest frontiers of orthopedic delivery."
Medacta was founded in 1999 and operates the M.O.R.E. Institute to train surgeons. The company plans to add up to 500 surgeons trained this year.
