HELD, Michael  and  DUNN, Robert. Growing local research in the era of Global Surgery. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.2, pp.16-18. ISSN 2309-8309.

Equity of access to quality musculoskeletal health care is a massive challenge for orthopaedic surgeons in South Africa. Over generations we have developed an inherent capability of frugal innovations and creative ways to improve our patient care. To establish a lean research culture and seek productive collaborations in the current research environment is key to generate indigenous evidence, independent of resources and funding. This bottom-up approach can co-exist and find synergies with an external strategy which evolved from the concept of 'Global Surgery'.
