Head of Research Group Vincent Stadelmann, PhD, EMBA

Dr. Vincent Stadelmann Spezialist Forschung

Dr Stadelmann is a physicist and biomedical scientist with expertise in orthopedic biomechanics, musculoskeletal diseases, medical imaging and data analysis. Ultimately his aims are to understand how biomechanical and radiological outcomes relate to patient reported and functional outcomes after an orthopedic intervention, in order to improve predictive models and better identify patients with special risks.
