About VSON Research & Education Foundation

Vail-Summit Orthopaedics & Neurosurgery Research & Education Foundation was established in 2013 by the physicians of Vail-Summit Orthopaedics, obtaining status as a 501(c)(3) public charity in 2014. The Foundation is supported financially by each of the Vail-Summit Orthopaedics physicians, in addition to industry partners and grateful patients. Vail Summit Orthopaedic Foundation (VSOF) is committed to the research, development and deployment of innovative orthopaedic surgical and recovery techniques to develop new programs and insights to help shorten recovery times and provide immediate progress to the field of orthopaedic surgery and recovery. The experts are at the forefront of engaging national conversation on cutting-edge orthopaedic procedures and recovery techniques.
The research activities focus to advance the science of orthopaedic medicine with basic science and clinical outcomes research of orthopaedic and sports medicine. The results of the investigations culminate in regional, national and international presentations and publication of the original research and reviews. Through these efforts, VSOF aims to expand the base of orthopaedic knowledge, share our findings with colleagues, and provide information that is imperative in determining best outcomes for patients, thus impacting individual decision-making by physicians and helping to guide health care policy.
VSOF promotes orthopaedic education and sponsor educational opportunities for peers through conferences, lectures, and anatomy labs, providing the opportunity for health care professionals to obtain credit for continuing medical education. Additionally, VSOF is directly involved in teaching and training student interns, medical students, residents, fellows and practicing physicians.
The Foundation's community outreach supports Eagle and Summit counties, by administering sports medicine and athletic training programs for students and residents, as well as preventative and therapeutic programs for county athletes.
