Rothman Orthopaedics at Jefferson Health



Our world-renowned researchers are studying musculoskeletal challenges at the molecular and cellular level. These discoveries are powering new innovations and cellular therapies designed to target pain at its biological source, addressing both the mechanical symptoms of orthopaedic conditions and their underlying physiological causes. In doing so, it is our ultimate vision to make enduring challenges like chronic back pain, infection, excessive scarring, and fibrosis a thing of the past.

Philanthropy is the driving force that enables us to launch proof-of-concept studies, recruit additional leaders to our research team, and accelerate the translation of scientific breakthroughs into new therapies and treatments.

You Make the Difference

We are steadfast in our mission to make a better world for patients and families affected by musculoskeletal conditions. But without visionary benefactors to power innovative and forward-thinking programs, they are likely to remain merely big ideas—tantalizingly out of reach for physicians and patients alike.

You are the difference. With a gift to support orthopaedic research or education, you put the next breakthrough, the next treatment, within reach. With the brightest minds, boldest ideas, and a reputation for next-generation and compassionate care, we are uniquely poised to make the most of your philanthropic investment, quickly transforming your generosity into tangible medical successes.
