Research Interests

Cementless total knee replacement, robotic hip and knee replacement, patient reported outcomes in hip and knee arthroplasty, and the hip-spine relationship in hip arthroplasty.

Ongoing research: 

  • Synovial fluid analysis in the setting of trunnionosis: Do elevated values indicate corrosion, infection, or both?
  • Does robotic-arm assisted reaming result in improved initial stability of press-fit acetabular implants?
  • Determining noise levels in robotic-assisted total joint arthroplasty?
  • Book Chapter Submitted. Complications in Orthopaedic Surgery: Adult Reconstruction, Painful total hip arthroplasty workup.
