The Fellowship of Orthopaedic Researchers (FOR) was founded in 2000 by Stephen D. Cook, PhD, with the purpose of conducting translational research to cure, treat, and prevent orthopaedic diseases and injuries. FOR is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit research institute with a 4000+ square foot research facility and a senior staff with nearly 100 years of combined orthopaedic and biomaterials research experience.
In support of our relationship with the Young Leadership Council (YLC), Fellowship of Orthopaedic Researchers was proud to host a group of 8th grade students from Langston Hughes Academy in New Orleans participating in the Job Site Visit phase of Power Ties on April 6, 2018.
FOR has partnered with Moirai Orthopaedics to create an advanced, minimally-invasive surgical Pyrocarbon Implant Replacement (PIR) System for the treatment of degenerative and arthritic knee disorders. The company was pleased to announce the PIR System received approval from the U.S. FDA in early 2015 for its Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) application to initiate clinical trials.Visit Moirai Orthopaedics
