About Clinical Research

The Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education (FORE) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was founded in 1999 by the surgeons at the Florida Orthopaedic Institute (FOI). FORE was established as a way to improve the care of patients with musculoskeletal disorders through research and education. While FORE operates independently from FOI, there is constant collaboration with FOI physicians on numerous research and education endeavors. The clinical research department conducts orthopaedic clinical trials in such sub-specialties as hand, foot, ankle, knee, hip, spine, elbow, shoulder and sports medicine.
