  • Scoliosis
  • Amputation and prosthetics
  • Biological preservation of knee and hip joints
  • Pediatric spine and growth plate problems
  • Complex knee trauma
  • Motocross orthopedic injuries and concussion
  • Wrist arthritis
  • Neuromuscular disease
  • Tissue engineering for spinal conditions
  • Bacterial and superbug colonization of surgical implants
