Physician-scientists and researchers at Shiley Center for Orthopaedic Research and Education (SCORE) at Scripps Clinic in Torrey Pines are pioneers in the effort develop new treatments and enhance existing ones. They are testing new devices and surgical techniques; developing artificial cartilage; and conducting publicly and privately funded clinical research to support the highest possible orthopedic care.
