CoE on Musculoskeletal Disease


Musculoskeletal problems are the number-one cause of disability worldwide, and with the aging of the baby boomer generation these conditions and diseases will severely strain healthcare systems. Their impact in the United States costs $240 billion annually in lost productivity, according to the National Institutes of Health.

The Center of Excellence on Musculoskeletal Disease is a multidisciplinary effort coordinating the basic, translational, and clinical science efforts of the Departments of Orthopaedic Surgery and Rheumatology—currently ranked #11 and #8, respectively, by U.S. News & World Report. Along with the Department of Radiology and basic scientists at the NYU School of Medicine, the center has created an integrated, world-class program and a top choice for patients seeking cutting-edge care.
