What We Do - Our Causes

Medical Research

Research

Since the establishment of Cappagh Hospital Foundation in 1988, over 40 Medical Research projects have been funded by you.

Over many years, medical professionals conducting critical research and investigating the causes of, and potential treatments for orthopaedic conditions and illnesses have been conducted within the medical field.

The tireless efforts of these professionals continues to ensure that future health and welfare of Cappagh’s and other hospital’s patients is at the forefront.

Some of these include:
