Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

1. Minimally invasive and arthroscopic treatment alternatives for common hand and wrist disorders. I am currently exploring the safety and efficacy of an all-inside arthroscopic triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) repair technique, the arthroscopic treatment of wrist, finger and thumb arthritis, arthroscopic treatment of intercarpal ligament injuries and other disorders

2. Biologic augmentation of tendon repair strategies utilizing stem cells. I am currently utilizing a unique model of bioactive sutures used as a delivery mechanism of stem cells for biologically augmenting current mechanical techniques of tendon repair.
