My research focuses on gaining an understanding of the painful hip joint in younger adults and the role of hip arthroscopy in hip preservation. My research also includes the development a database that includes outcomes data from patients that have undergone hip arthroscopy to treat intra-articular hip pathology. My studies have demonstrated that patients with acetabular labral tears experience changes in balance control when compared to healthy controls. I am also involved in preliminary studies to determine whether or not biomarker levels are elevated in blood samples from young patients with hip pain who undergo hip preservation surgery.
