Todd A. Milbrandt, M.D., investigates pediatric muscle, tendon and bone dysfunction. Specifically, he is interested in re-creating naturally found tissue when that tissue is damaged. By using tissue-engineering techniques, Dr. Milbrandt looks to reform cartilage in growth arrest from childhood trauma, to prevent hip collapse in Legg-Calve-Perthes disease and to eradicate bone infections.
Muscle, tendon and bone problems are compounded in children because of their growth rate. Each of Dr. Milbrandt's areas of research addresses current gaps in pediatric clinical care. With the potential to directly transfer these technologies to the bedside, he is working toward improved outcomes for debilitating orthopaedic diseases.
