We investigate the risk and prognosis of serious complications, such as infections, thrombosis, chronic pain, kidney failure, and implant failure in patients undergoing hip and knee surgery. We use advanced epidemiological methods. Our aim is to improve the quality of clinical care and patient safety and translate new evidence-based knowledge into clinical practice.

We focus on optimizing the diagnostics and management of children suffering from diseases in the musculoskeletal system. Two main areas are growth plate lesions and dysplastic hips and feet. For more information, please visit our website,

We investigate frailty and how frailty interferes with diseases in old persons. Our main goal is to study and develop clinical, rehabilitation and organizational methods to limit the negative influence of diseases on the physical and cognitive function, quality of life and mortality.

We aim to fill knowledge gaps on optimal rehabilitation to patients with musculoskeletal illnesses. Our research supports the development, piloting and testing of treatments for common and costly musculoskeletal problems in primary and secondary care, including hip, knee and shoulder pain.

The Bladder Cancer Research Team focuses on all aspects of bladder cancer from small non-invasive tumours to advanced bladder cancer with metastasis. From early detection through molecular medical methods to rehabilitation following major surgery.

Our main topic is colorectal cancer. We investigate anastomotic leak after rectal resection and how to lower the risk. Moreover, we evaluate efficacy, complications, late adverse effects, quality of life after surgery (HIPEC, pelvic exenteration) for peritoneal metastases and local advanced disease.

My main research interests include acute and chronic pain after surgery (personalized risk prediction, prevention and intervention; innovative ICT solutions). The goal is to improve outcomes for patients undergoing surgery.

We investigate joint kinematics related to ligament instability and joint arthroplasty failure by use of dynamic radiosteremetry, 3D models of bones/implants, and deep learning. This leads to a new understanding of joint pathomechanics and quantification of surgical results with perspectives for improved treatment modalities.

We investigate new treatments for hip and knee joint pathology with focus on sportstraumatology conditions of ligament, meniscus and cartilage injuries. We investigate knee ligament injury epidemilogy by national clinical registries. We aim to improve treatments for lower extremity injuriy.

The Aarhus Prostate Cancer-project is an important research resource. Promising new predictive and prognostic markers have been discovered - with the potential to make personalized medicine a reality. Medical trials, clinical epidemiology and the exiting new generation of imaging are all topics of ongoing research.

The main research areas are: proctology, fistula-in-ano, fecal incontinence, neurogenic bowel dysfunction, rectal prolapse, enterostomas, patient reported outcomes and quality of life. Moreover, we host a National Research Center for late adverse effects following cancer in the pelvic organs.

We conduct research within general thoracic surgery, thrombosis and haemostasis - especially intervention studies (e.g. randomized, controlled trials) and epidemiological studies, including minimal invasive surgery and cancer. We are involved in several national and international studies. Read more at

We seek to understand relationships between musculoskeletal conditions and working life, so that prevention activities and interventions can be initiated and evaluated, for the benefit of workplaces, health care professionals and citizens.

Our research group, H-HiP, focus on diseases around and within the hip joint. We focus on optimizing pre-habilitation to enhance surgical outcome or even avoid surgical procedures, optimizing rehabilitation after surgical procedures, and optimizing the surgical process in itself.

In our group we investigate the use of ex-vivo organ machine perfusion for regenerative therapies and reconditioning of donor kidneys prior to transplantation. In addition we have a great interest for mesenchymal stem cell therapies in the field of regenerative medicine and immunomodulation.

We focus on optimizing nursing care for patients with muscle, bone, and joint injuries. Our objectives include investigating tools for personalized care and enhancing nurses' competencies. Furthermore, we lead international research on developing and evaluating a tool for postoperative observation.

Our research focuses on elucidating the aetiology and improving the management of urogenital congenital anomalies such as hypospadias, bladder exstrophy, posterior urethral valves and neurogenic bladder dysfunction. From the paediatric age group, through transition and into adulthood.

We eager to improve prevention and treatment of orthopaedic infections. We apply microdialysis for sampling of antibiotic concentrations, ischemic metabolites and inflammatory markers in bone tissue. This allows for an evaluation of the existing antibiotic treatment regimens and improves understanding the etiology of orthopaedic infections.
