My research focuses on the design and testing of novel techniques to enhance bone ingrowth into porous coated implants. I am also involved in the design and testing of new porous structures to optimize the bone response to implantation and avoid secondary stress shielding. My clinical research involves the outcomes of total hip and total knee arthroplasty.
- enhancement of bone ingrowth into porous implants
- stress shielding of implants
- design of new biomaterials
