Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Research
Research is an integral component of the sports medicine fellowship.
At a minimum, both a clinical and a basic science project will be
required. The fellow will be given ample time for project completion. It
is expected that these projects will be presented at national meetings
and published in appropriate peer reviewed journals.
W. Gehring Biomechanical Research Center serves as our basic science
laboratory. Kevin Baker, Ph.D. supervises the five research
engineers and specializes in materials engineering.
clinical research setting, the fellow will be provided support for
outcomes analysis based on longitudinal patient follow-up.
Areas of research
- augmentation of soft tissue to bone healing
- optimizing rehabilitation in shoulder surgery based on biomechanical evidence
- analysis of in-vivo glenohumeral relationships during sports activities using advanced motion analysis techniques
- elbow ligament reconstruction techniques
