Areas of Research Interest

Clinical outcome studies of reconstructive shoulder and elbow surgery including: rotator cuff disease (partial and full thickness rotator cuff tears), shoulder and elbow arthritis, proximal humerus fractures, shoulder tendon transfers and labral/biceps tendon repairs. Outcomes of various resident education teaching methods. Basic science interests: biomechanical constructs for arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, shoulder tendon transfers for irreparable rotator cuff injuries.
