The Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences (NDORMS) is pleased to welcome Professor Matt Costa to the department, joining from 11 May 2015 as Professor of Orthopaedic Trauma Surgery.
Matt is an internationally recognised clinical academic in orthopaedic trauma , as well as having his own clinical practice in trauma surgery. He joins us from the Warwick Clinical Trials Unit, where until recently he was Professor of Trauma and Orthopaedics.
Matt’s research interest is in clinical and cost effectiveness of musculoskeletal interventions, as well as clinical trials and trial design.
Speaking of his appointment, Professor Costa said: “I’m very excited to be joining the team at NDORMS. Musculoskeletal trauma is a huge issue for patients, the NHS and society more broadly. There are so many areas where we can improve patient care and there is no where in the world better placed to address this need than Oxford. I can’t wait to start at NDORMS and look forward to working with the world-leading academics at the University and the world-leading surgeons at the John Radcliffe Hospital”.
Professor Andrew Carr, Head of NDORMS welcomed Professor Costa and said: "I am delighted that Professor Matt Costa is joining the department. He has an international reputation in surgical trials of trauma and will add significantly to research in this area”.
