My primary area of clinical research is wound healing. We arecurrently investigating processes such as multi-disciplinary care, informatics, and digital photography to improve diagnosis and management of complex wounds. We are examining novel techniques in abdominal wall closure. We are studying the execution of complex wound care within a practice of Acute and Critical Care Surgery.
