Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

The primary subjects of my research interests over the past ten years have been clinical reviews of series of patients with a variety of pediatric orthopaedic treatable conditions. These have included neuromuscular scoliosis, developmental dislocation of the hip, and deformities in cerebral palsy. We have a fully equipped motion analysis laboratory which, under the direction of Dr. Jessica Agramonte, participates in clinical and basic research related to the causes and effects of muscle spasticity, energy consumption, and gait analysis. Most of our research projects require reviews of multiple charts, x-rays, etc., and/or participation in activities of the Motion Analysis Laboratory.
