OVERVIEW

Professor Michael Schuetz, orthopaedic and trauma surgeon is working with medical engineers and computer scientists, and surgeons and emergency medicine specialists at the Princess Alexandra Hospital as part of the QUT Trauma Group.

The group focuses on improved bone fracture healing through computer modelling, developing bone substitutes and infection resistant implant coatings. The group has had success creating new models to help researchers better understand the fracture healing process, efficacy of current surgical interventions in fracture healing, and better ways to measure the fit of surgical implants. Emerging research into how osteoporosis, infections and drugs affect fracture healing will have large impact on the community at large.
