Research on problems of spinal diseases focused on degenerative and post-traumatic states of the spine, applying findings in the tissue engineering, the vertebrae biomechanics, the osseointegration of artificial replacements and their failure revising.

his project tends to solve, in complexity, the problems of spinal diseases, being focused mainly to such cases the treatment of which requires spinal replacements to be implanted. The project aims to assess objective evaluations of implants which have been used so far and then, based on the basic research findings in the range of biomechanics of the spinal system (internal ligamentary and nervous systems) and in the range of the tissue engineering to assess basic requirements needed for the development of spinal implants of completely new types.
