I firmly believe that continual adaptation and reluctance to accept the status quo will help me provide the best possible Orthopaedic care to my patients. We have to ask questions even if the answers are not what we are always looking for. That is research.

My Fellowship mentors at the Cleveland Clinic enhanced my question-driven mindset. They taught me that research provides an academic venue to explore my clinical and surgical questions; my experience motivated me to maintain a balanced approach in practice. That is why, despite a busy clinical practice, my team and I are heavily involved in clinical studies. We truly believe that the information we obtain from clinical research allows us to fine-tune our care for patients – ultimately, providing the most effective and innovative treatments. I started our non-for-profit research foundation at Hinsdale Orthopaedics with that in mind. With our merger with Illinois Bone and Joint Institute, the research endeavors have been further supported through a larger research organization.

Please feel free to review our ongoing clinical studies as well as any of our previous research through the publications page.
