Adult Hip & Knee Arthroplasty; Arthroplasty - Hip & Knee; Hip Arthroscopy; Lower Extremity Joint Replacement & Reconstruction; Orthopaedic Surgery
My clinical practice is focused on hip reconstruction. Hip reconstruction requires similar in depth knowledge of normal and pathologic anatomy, physiology and kinematics from infancy to geriatrics.
I am a clinical professor of orthopedic surgery that specializes in the teaching of minimally invasive hip replacement and arthroscopic management of hip preserving surgery. Interaction with the residents stimulates me to keep current with the fund of growing orthopedic knowledge and to investigate what is not yet known.
My research efforts are focused on the clinical results of our combined multidisciplinary team approach to the advancement of hip arthroscopic techniques and minimally invasive hip replacement surgery. Our latest hip arthroscopy advanced technique, a novel portal bridge technique, is accepted for publication in the journal of sports medicine and we are following that up with a new arthroscopic suture retraction and portal technique. Most exciting is our recently developed minimally invasive Watson-jones approach for total hip replacement which we have recently written up for publication and industry support for education. I am also working on an arthroscopically assisted total hip approach.
I joined UBMD Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine in 1993 and remain most interested in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the hip.
