Excellence in patient care, research and education is our mission in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Washington University School of Medicine.
We believe that excellence in patient care requires that outstanding service to our patients, their family members and referring physicians should be the standard. We strive continuously to improve all aspects of care and service for our patients.
Our commitment to excellence in research is based on the belief that the research talent of our faculty must be fully engaged in the advancement of knowledge and the application of new, responsible clinical techniques to promote the health and welfare of our society.
Our goal of excellence in education makes it our responsibility to inspire the next generation. Their acquired talents and skills represent our endowment to future generations, and the reputation of our program is only as good as the reputation of our graduates. Our commitment to excellence demands that we approach each patient, family member and coworker with respect, dignity and compassion.
