I am a fellowship-trained Orthopaedic Trauma Surgeon with an interest in orthopaedic trauma clinical outcomes research and function after orthopaedic trauma. In addition, my research background includes anatomic studies and biomechanical evaluation of orthopaedic trauma injuries and fixation. I am actively involved in education of orthopaedic residents and biomedical research as it pertains to orthopaedic trauma. On a daily basis I evaluate and treat patients with orthopaedic trauma of all types from high-energy acute trauma to elderly patients with osteoporotic fractures. Orthopaedic trauma encompasses a wide variety of clinical scenarios and patient activity levels. My background and experience help this research to find a direct practical application to complex clinical problems that have staggering economic consequences. In addition, I have focused specifically on pain management after orthopaedic trauma and am currently involved in several ongoing studies in this area.
