MMI’s breadth of experience ranges from soft tissue repair and regeneration to hemi and total joint replacements.
Our joint space narrowing measurement technique has been validated for both accuracy and reproducibility using our patented QMA® technology.
We have evaluated all of the major articular joints in the body, including in the hands and feet.
MMI has over fifteen years of experience in providing core lab support for more than 150 orthopedic device and biopharmaceutical companies internationally, including 14 of the top 15 global market leaders.
At MMI, we have evaluated well over 100 unique treatments for musculoskeletal disorders of the hip, knee, ankle, wrist, shoulder, elbow, peripheral joints, and long bones involving osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, trauma, and sports medicine. Broadly, our musculoskeletal treatment experience includes but is not limited to drugs, stem cells, biologics, viscosupplements, marrow stimulation, tissue grafting, ablation, bone fillers, fixation devices, bioresorbable scaffolds, biphasic implants, biomimetic devices, resurfacing, and partial and total arthroplasty.
