The ONS Foundation
The ONS Foundation was established in alliance with Greenwich Hospital. Its purpose is to develop the most advanced surgical techniques, rehabilitation protocols and clinical outcomes in orthopedics and neurosurgery. The foundation is currently working on several research projects. One study is comparing outcomes of open spine surgery to minimally invasive surgery and another is examining spinal stress fractures in young athletes.
