Bone graft alternatives; Spine fusion studies; Clinical spine practices; Practice of spine surgery
The focus of my research is exploring the potential role and mechanism of osteobiologics to facilitate bone formation. This is needed for fusion, which is a common surgical procedure. Our efforts are primarily at the preclinical, biomechanical, and molecular levels.
My laboratory also performs multiple studies critically evaluating multiple aspects of current clinical practice.
