Dr. Amadio is the Lloyd A. and Barbara A. Amundson Professor of Orthopedics with joint appointments in the Division of Health Care Policy and Research and the Department of Physiology and Biomedical Engineering.
An active member of the Division of Hand Surgery in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Dr. Amadio's clinical interests include congenital hand diseases, upper extremity tumors and distal upper extremity tendon injuries.
The goal of the Amadio lab has been to improve the results of tendon repair by applying tissue engineering approaches to two interrelated issues: The effect of loading on wound healing and soft tissue material properties (Wolff's law of soft tissue) and the effect of tendon repair and lubrication on tendon gliding.

- Tendon Healing
- Effect of Mechanical Forces on Soft Tissue remodeling ("Wolff's Law" of soft tissue)
