As a pediatric spine surgeon, I am interested in the outcome of patients who undergo surgery to correct spinal deformity. This includes studying methods of correcting deformity and relating the correction achieved to how patients feel about undergoing surgery. I also have a research interest in patients who suffer fractures and their management, whether it be with a cast or with surgery. Finally, I have a special interest in healthcare quality, delivery and the economic aspect of healthcare.
