The center brings the burgeoning field of orthobiologics as well as surgery, rehabilitation and research into one administrative entity to better coordinate the continuum of care for patients, to develop standardized protocols and to organize research efforts.

“CCJPC’s mission is to improve people’s lives by reducing pain, restoring mobility and preserving function of diseased or injured joints,” says Michael A. Mont, MD, Chairman, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, who co-chairs the center with Abby Abelson, MD, Chair of the Rheumatic and Immunologic Diseases Department.

The center’s multidisciplinary team integrates innovations and advances in orthobiologics. “In this highly collaborative environment, which is rigorously objective in assessment of outcomes, we are committed to continuous improvement, excellence and advancing the field through the systematic assessment of alternative therapies,” says Dr. Abelson.


Interested physicians are welcome to contact either Dr. Mont or Dr. Abelson.
