Our surgeons and fellows are committed to conducting and participating in clinical research programs that are related to the hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder. Through these efforts, we are able to improve our clinical outcomes and our overall care for our patients. We continually participate in the development and invention of new prosthetic devices, state-of-the-art treatment solutions and cutting-edge surgical techniques.

Some of our research efforts have included the following: 

  • Development of elbow replacement
  • Assisting with development of new internal fixation devices for fracture care
  • Investigation of better options for treatment of wrist arthritis
  • Investigation of treatments for nerve compression syndromes
  • Evaluation of novel nerve repair techniques
  • Participation in studies looking at new treatments for Dupuytren’s contracture
  • Assisting in developing devices used for treatment of radius fractures
  • Development of safer and more innovative uses of wrist arthroscopy
  • Evaluation of treatments for basilar thumb arthritis
  • Evaluation of treatments for tendon ruptures and repairs
