Personal profile

Research interests

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. In conjunction with the Radiology Department, Kells aims to greatly expand the utilization of MRI neurography to improve the identification and treatment of patients with traumatic nerve injuries.
