    Kells is interested in researching the clinical application of MRI neurography to traumatic nerve injury as well as nerve compression syndromes. Kells completed fellowships in: Microsurgery at University of Southern California; Complex Wounds at University of Mississippi; Orthopedic Hand Surgery at SUNY Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, New York; and Plastic Hand Surgery at New York University School of Medicine.MRI neurography is a developing imaging modality for use in a wide variety of clinical settings of nerve injury and pathology. Washington University is a busy level one trauma center in an urban setting and thus presents a unique opportunity to utilize the growing field of MRI neurography to study traumatic nerve injury.
