Research Interests

I am interested in how to accurately predict patient-specific postoperative muscle function after a total knee replacement. I am studying how preoperative muscle function of the patient and intraoperative surgical techniques combined affect surgical outcomes. The goal of this research is to provide doctors with more patient-specific information pre-surgery so that they can tailor the surgical procedures to give each patient the best chance at a successful recovery.
