The focus of my research is centered on biomechanics of joints and fracture fixation. Specific avenues of research include biomechanics of cranial cruciate ligament reconstruction techniques and meniscus treatments, models of tibial osteotomies, minimally invasive fracture fixation. Laboratory assessment modalities include biomechanical testing, kinematics and gait analysis.
- Accuracy of noninvasive, single-plane fluoroscopic analysis for measurement of three-dimensional femorotibial joint poses in dogs treated by tibial plateau leveling osteotomy.
