Current Research

As an orthopaedic oncologist my goals in patient care are to restore and maintain patient function while dealing with
limb and life threatening illness. Research that aims to ultimately reduce complication rates and maintain function
help me to meet my patient care goals. My affiliation with New Jersey Medical School over the past 16 years has
allowed for my research to flourish as I have evaluated the outcomes of various reconstructive procedures in a variety
of different manners, including canine related research, functional evaluation postoperatively in conjunction with the
School of Health Related Professions, Physical Therapy School and retrospectively with the Radiation Oncology
Department at New Jersey Medical School, as just a few examples. Working with other departments and schools
within the university system has always allowed for insight, knowledge and progress beyond that gained when
working independently.
