Research Activities

My research is focused on improving surgical techniques and orthopedic care for children and young adults with osteogenesis imperfecta. I’m proud to be part of our multidisciplinary osteogenesis imperfecta team, which participates in a multicenter, national research consortium focused on brittle bone disorders.


My other areas of active research include pediatric limb deformity and pediatric trauma.
