The Orthopaedic Education and Research Institute of Southern California (or OSI Foundation)

The Foundation

The Orthopaedics Education and Research Institute is a non-profit organization (501c3) that was founded by physicians at the Orthopaedic Specialty Institute in 2002. Physician participants desire to enhance the quality of life for those patients affected by musculoskeletal disease. This is achieved through a variety of means including but not limited to the practice of excellence in patient care.


We are actively involved in medical research and are currently supporting multiple projects teamed with industry leaders and innovators to develop new orthopaedic treatment modalities based on sound, scientific methodology. This will ultimately improve outcomes for patients with musculoskeletal disease.


In addition to research, the Foundation also supports resident training in conjunction with the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at UC Irvine Medical Center. As much as research is important for the future care of our patients, resident education is just as important to train the next generation of skilled surgeons. Financial support for this valuable endeavor is achieved only through the generous donations to our foundation.

We appreciate your support and it is through tax deductible donations that we are able continue and perform this vital education and research program.
