According to the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics, more than 1 million total knee and hip replacement surgeries are performed every year. Because so many individuals rely on medical intervention to keep them mobile, we are committed to the advancement of orthopedic innovation through both biopharmaceutical and medical device and diagnostic development.

Chiltern has a team of orthopedists and other medical professionals who specialize in the full spectrum of musculoskeletal research — adding support and value to your project with their expertise and leadership. Working as a cross-functional group, the team collaborates with you to provide orthopedic advice from medical, operational, regulatory and cost-efficiency perspectives. The relationships they foster with key surgeons and other industry leaders allow them to provide deeper insights and strategic guidance, leading to better patient experiences, improved clinical outcomes and expedited regulatory approvals.
