About Me

I am a principal investigator for the Major Extremity Trauma Research Consortium (METRC) at Wake Forest School of Medicine. This consortium, supported by the Department of Defense, has established a network of clinical sites to perform clinical outcome studies to develop treatment guidelines for managing high energy extremity trauma sustained by wounded warriors and civilians. Participation in this consortium involves departmental participation in well-designed, multicenter clinical trials. My research interests include evaluating new trauma-related orthopaedic implants and procedures for managing extremity pelvic trauma. I also work with biomedical engineers at the medical school to develop three dimensional pelvis models to enhance resident education. I received biomechanical funding for studies on the management of tibial plateau fractures and anterior column with posterior hemitransverse acetabular fractures.
