Tremendous development has been made in orthopedic surgery over the last few decades due to the application of basic researches and new technology such as biomedical engineering, digital technology, and tissue engineering. This clinical application results in a novel change in many aspects including new surgical technique and treatment, improving treatment strategy from complex data analysis, custom-made implant and instrument, and innovative assisting device for better treatment or surgical education. This advancement has been enhancing the quality of care and outcome for patients and deserves the attention and acknowledgement for further integration and continuous improvement in the related orthopedic subspecialty.

This special issue is designed to present the recent advance in the orthopedic management and the development of the new strategy, surgical technique and novel instrument, as a platform to expand the knowledge and share the foresight in the field of surgical innovation and novel orthopedic approaches. Our main focuses are
1. The development of new instrument based on the application of biomedical engineering technology (such as laser welding, 3D-printing technology, sensor-based technology, artificial intelligence technology, tissue engineering, etc.), either for nonoperative and operative treatment, and also for medical education or orthopedic field.
2. The creation of new surgical technique or intervention for the operative treatment with the evidence of improving clinical outcomes, especially in the common orthopedic problems (such as geriatric hip fracture) or in the challenging orthopedic issues (such as nonunion and infection).
3. The conception of new strategy and guideline from the appropriate data collection methods and analysis, especially from meta-analysis of the up-to-date evidence.

We invite original research manuscripts, case reports and review articles focusing on specific areas related to surgical innovation and novel approaches for the treatment, either operative or non-operative modalities. Potential topics include but are not limited to:
• Novel instrument or basic research related to new implant design, fracture fixation technique, patient-specific instrument, and smart assistive devices.
• Pioneering surgical technique and perioperative intervention designed for preoperative planning, intraoperative management, and postoperative care, for preventing perioperative complication and/or enhancing surgical outcomes.
• Risk factor analysis and strategic development with data collection for common or difficult orthopedic problem, such as correction of pediatric deformity, non-union, geriatric hip fracture, osteoporosis and osteoporosis-related problems, and periprosthetic joint infection.
• Application of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, such as orthobiologic agent, stem cell, and artificial tissue, in orthopedic surgery.
• Innovative device related to surgical skill simulation for improving orthopedic surgical education.
