My Research

My research interests focus on patient-centered research, arthritis and joint replacement outcomes and quality improvement.

My research has been in collaboration with a wide variety of faculty members within our institution and others. It has focused primarily on patient outcomes, cost-effectiveness and resource allocation and quality improvement.  Since joining the NYU faculty in 2007, I have been an author or co-author on a diverse profile of publications. In addition, I obtained an internal NYU seed grant to develop the touch-screen patient reported outcome tools used by patients with assistance of administrative office staff, now collecting data on several thousand patients across several divisions of the department. I serve as site Surgeon Champion for the American Joint Replacement Registry, and we were one of the first sites to begin actively collecting data, serving as a pilot center for this national effort.  To date we have contributed data on thousands of total joint implant surgeries.  I have served as the site principle investigator for three industry funded trials, and am currently the site principle investigator for the NIH funded KASTPain study, a Phase III randomized controlled trial of a pain coping skills protocol for total knee patients.
