Chief, Hip Preservation Surgery
Department / Division
Durham, NC 27710
Hip preservation surgery including hip arthroscopy, open surgical dislocation, periacetabular osteotomy; treatment of hip joint disorders secondary to hip impingement and adult hip dysplasia; hip procedures of the direct anterior total hip replacement using the specialized surgical table; periacetabular osteotomy for adult hip dysplasia; treatment of fractures of the femur and hip; management of acute fractures of the pelvis and acetabulum; long-term effects of trauma to the pelvis and extremities
As an Orthopaedic Surgeon my primary focus of research is joint preservation. My primary clinical interests are Orthopaedic Trauma and Hip Reconstruction.
In Orthopaedic Trauma my research interests are 1) Basic science investigations of articular fractures with two current animal models in use. 2) Clinical research includes evaluation of techniques to reduce and stabilize articular fractures, as well as management of open fractures.
In the area of Hip Reconstruction my areas of research are 1) Hip Arthroscopy and treatment of hip disorders, and treatment of labral tears in the treatment of hip pain. 2) Periacetabular osteotomy for the treatment of hip dysplasia.
