Areas of Research Interest

Dr. Brogan has research interests in peripheral nerve injuries and compression neuropathies (carpal tunnel, peroneal nerve injury, brachial plexus injury), upper extremity trauma including distal radius fractures, ulnar sided wrist pain and TFCC tears. His current research focuses on nerve regeneration, identifying ways to increase the probability of nerve healing by way of imaging, 3D printing, and surgical treatment.
