Currently we are engaged in a study to assess the forces applied by the new magnetic growing rod system to the proximal foundation in these constructs and assessing spine vs. rib anchors.
Another project involves the assessment of physician satisfaction and utilization of EMR with and without scribes in the outpatient setting.

Extensive Research Description
Brian Smith is a doctor at Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital and the Yale University School of Medicine. Dr Smith is currently involved in two major research projects; one to assess the forces applied to the proximal anchor foundations of growing rod systems in children and another to assess the impact of scribes on physician satisfaction.
