2014 research

My research interest in the field of foot and ankle medicine and surgery is broad, involving all aspects of foot and ankle clinical practice and surgical procedures.  The focus of my research is primarily on the outcome of commonly performed treatments of foot and ankle ailments, both conservative and surgical.   I enjoy taking current procedures and or treatments and systematically reviewing them to make sure that we are using the most up to date, biomechanically sound, and evidenced based options available to us in the care of our patients.
