Organisationsprofil

The Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Hvidovre Hospital treat patients with disorders of bones, joints and muscles. Our areas of specialization are Osteoarthritis of the hip and knee, Sports Surgery, Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery, Foot and Ankle Surgery and Acute Surgery.

The department's goal is to be the country's leading and most dynamic orthopedic surgery department with the greatest patient satisfaction and the highest staff well-being. Part of this is to focus on quality and development knowledge, methods etc. Hence, we educate, we evaluate and we do research. We have several research-active units that deal with various orthopedic research areas:

 

Clincal Orthopaedic Research Hvidovre (CORH)

Aims and objectives

Our vision is to ensure the highest quality of orthopaedic care through continuous aspiration for the highest level of knowledge. Standards of treatment are often based on tradition or dogma. CORH aims to break down existing dogmas and ensure evidence-based choice of patient care.

 

Focus areas

The research conducted by the members of CORH is very interdisciplinary within the field of orthopaedics. It is, nonetheless, all based on clinical orthopaedic issues of how to optimize the treatment of orthopaedic patients. Our primary focus is patients with hip or knee osteoarthritis.

 

Disciplines, methods and tools

Research areas are multiple and but two central pillars of CORH research is the performance of Randomised Clinical Trials and prospective database studies especially concerning osteoarthritis and fractures. Research is conducted both locally, nationally and internationally.

 

In 2018 professor Anders Troelsen took the initiative to start up a larger and cross-cutting research group. In collaboration with 10 partners we were announced Clinical Academic Group: Research in Osteoarthritis Denmark (CAG ROAD) under the auspices of Greater Copenhagen Health Science Partners.

The Research Unit of Orthopedic Nursing

Aims and objectives

The aims of The Research Unit of Orthopaedic Nursing are to develop and implement evidence-based nursing to orthopaedic patients by conducting research, develop practice and advance clinical competencies among nurses in the department.

 

Focus areas

Our field of research include both health and social sciences. This encompasses fundamental care, social inequality in health as well as organisational structures to support and optimise patientcare.

 

Disciplines, methods and tools

We have an action research-inspired approach to research, development and implementation in which we involve both nurses and managers as well as patients and relatives to ensure implementations benefit the patients.

The Human Movement Analysis Laboratory (HuMAn-Lab)

HuMAn-Lab is a part of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Copenhagen University Hospital, Amager-Hvidovre.

 

Aims and objectives

Through high quality research using 3D movement analyses and measurements of muscle strength, neuromuscular coordination and postural control, HUMAN-lab aim to improve prevention and treatment of movement related problems in children and adolescents, as well as adults.

 

Focus areas

One focus area is to investigate characteristics of neurological gait and movements, and effects of traditional or new treatments, to improve general outcome and individualize treatment and rehabilitation of the single patient.

Another focus is to improve knowledge on movement-related injury mechanisms and optimal prevention measures to better identify primary and secondary injury risk factors in order to improve specific preventive measures or rehabilitation interventions after orthopaedic surgery.

 

Disciplines, methods and tools

The laboratory is a well-equipped biomechanical laboratory capable of performing 3D movement analyses with synchronised EMG recordings of individual muscle activity, Inertial Movement Unit recordings, muscle strength measurements and measurements of dynamic plantar pressure distribution. Results of research projects are published in national and international journals.  Members of the staff are specialists in biomechanics with backgrounds in human physiology and/or engineering.
