New Surgical Approaches to Fracture

New Surgical Approaches to Fracture


My research and activities have been involving
the development of new methods of treatment. They include surgical approaches, implants
that are able to take care of problems that heretofore were not able to be done, and also
clinical outcomes of our work, which I think has been very important in showing long-term
results of the surgical treatments. Many fractures around the wrists do not need
surgery but rather to have a type of cement put in the fracture site. It can be done through the skin without cutting
open the limb and allow patients to have good function, even if they have osteoporosis. Many patients who have had injuries lose movement
and develop loss of motion and a functional disability, and this is an area where newer
surgical approaches allow things to be done as an outpatient, giving patients more motion
and a better overall function. In the near future, we’ll be seeing absorbable
materials, we’ll be seeing ways to treat ligament injuries without extensive surgery. My research in this continues along those
lines.
