Clinical Interest:
Hip & Knee Arthroplasty/Foot

No Children, Backs & Hands

Research Interest:
Primary research interest areas is outcome research in large orthopaedic patient populations (total joint arthroplasty and geriatric hip fracture) focusing on health service utilization, and functional recovery following a surgical intervention. I also have a research interest in knowledge transfer activities, determining methods to effectively encourage ongoing adoption of evidence-based practice for both health care professionals and decision-makers.

I have several years of clinical and research experience in orthopaedics focused on outcomes following 1) total joint arthoplasty and 2) hip fractures in elderly patients. I am currently Site Medical Director at the University of Alberta Hospital in addition to maintaining a clincial practice specializing in total joint arthroplasty.
