The major research interest is post-traumatic contractures of the elbow. Research platforms include in vitro collagen gel studies, molecular and immunohistochemical methods to evaluate tissues, animal models with preclinical evaluation of potential therapeutics, clinical research on elbow injury epidemiology, and randomized clinical trials. Specific clinical studies on elbow and wrist disorders, including case reports, retrospective reviews, prospective cohorts and randomized clinical trials, are other research interests. A recent research direction in health services is developing and implementing care pathways in hip fractures and fragility fractures and osteoporosis treatment. This is in conjunction with the Bone and Joint Strategic Clinical Network.
