IS A HUMAN LIFE WORTH $2800 ?

Here is the math:  At Kaiser Permanente in Southern California, they have reduced hip fractures by 40%.  If we reduce fractures by only 20% that would mean 60 less hip fractures each year.  Since 20% of people die the first year after they break their hip, this would mean 12 less people dying each year.  If we can hire a full-time research assistant at only $33,600 per year  (you should know that the research institution requires 40% additional overhead so the salary is only $2000/month)-  then we can SAVE 12 people from dying and many more from the pain and misery of their hip fractures by preventing them.  So if you donate $2800, you can save one life!   I am not asking you to donate the full amount.  I am asking you to donate just  $100.

Consider for a moment osteoporosis, weak bone.  We are in the midst of an epidemic and no one seems to be noticing.  Our parents and grandparents are at risk of falling.  Once they fall and break a bone, often their lives are changed forever.  For example, after a fracture of the hip, 20% will die in the first year.  Of those that survive the first year, many never regain their independence and many remain with pain and a limp.  Amazingly, even after these fractures, no one is treating the weak bone!

But we can do something.  There is treatment to help prevent these fractures.  One of the research projects described below is designed to change the system.  It is designed to create a new mindset and a new process to start and continue treatment.  Help us prevent these osteoporotic fractures and help prevent the suffering that follows by contributing to this research foundation.

 

Genesis Orthopedic Research uses the donations directly for research. We obtained federal tax-free status without the expense of an attorney.  The website cost was only for hosting.  Our pledge is that the money you donate will go directly to research and not to administrative costs.

At the bottom of this page is a link where you can donate to this research foundation.

Help us heal the world!

The salary for a research assistant including hospital overhead and required benefits is about $2800 per month.  That means, that if donate the full amount, you can sponsor one full month of work for the research assistant.  If you wish, you can choose which month and we will send you an update once a week as to the progress made during the month that you sponsor.

We have projects in progress and some ready to start (see below).  With a master’s degree in mechanical engineering from MIT, and 20 years of experience as a surgeon, we plan interesting and meaningful research.

Tennis Elbow Treatment
