My clinical practice has recently changed from traditional arthroscopic and sports related orthopedic surgery to focus full time on education and research. The time gained from no longer seeing patients or performing surgery will be used to expand my roles as a teacher and a clinical researcher. My effort will now be devoted to instruction in the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Center of Excellence in Sports Medicine Skills ab and in the UB RISE Surgical Simulation Lab.
My philosophy and goals of the arthroscopy teaching lab are:
•Provide for instruction of the basics of arthroscopy, including the physics, optics, and electronics of the equipment used in the operating room
•Teach all relevant superficial and arthroscopic anatomy of the major joints of the body
•Demonstrate and practice the navigational skills of arthroscopy, such as orientation, localization, triangulation, and quadrangulation
•Demonstrate and practice diagnostic arthroscopy of all of the major joints
•Instruct and proctor performance of the basic and advanced arthroscopic procedures
•Encourage research into existing and emerging arthroscopic technologies and procedures
•Provide subjective and objective feedback on the acquisition of arthroscopic skill as it pertains to career guidance
•Introduce and instruct using virtual reality and evaluate a process of credentialing doctors based on simulator testing for competence
