Personal profile

Research interests

My research interest focuses on the treatment and outcome of common knee and shoulder sports injuries, especially ACL and meniscus tears in the knee and instability and labral tears in the shoulder. I am especially interested in how injury initiates the early steps of post traumatic osteoarthritis and how to potentially delay or prevent this long term outcome, from a clinical and translational perspective. 

Clinical interests

Shoulder instability and dislocations, labral tears, SLAP tears, rotator cuff tears,AC joint injuries and clavicle fractures. Shoulder stabilization and labral repair, rotator cuff repair.
