His research focuses on treatment of rotator cuff injuries.  Rotator cuff tears are a common and debilitating injury in the US and around the world.  Current surgical techniques often fall short of optimal healing and recovery.  Our research focuses on the development of a bioactive fiber based tendon augmentation device to mimic the natural tendon healing process.  The potential application of this technology promises to drastically improve tendon tear treatments and outcomes.
