Academic Appointments:

  • Clinical Associate Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, NYU School of Medicine, New York, New York

Clinical Appointments:

  • Chief Ortho, Adult Reconstructive Surgery, NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases
  • Chairman, Quality Assurance Committee, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, NYU-HJD ( – 2005)
  • Preceptor, Adult Reconstructive Fellowship Program

Research:

  • Founder and co-director of the Advanced Arthroplasty Research Center at the NYU Langone Hospital for Joint Diseases (2012). The center focuses on pioneering work in pressure mapping technology allowing inbedded sensors to improve the accuracy of balancing of joint replacements thus heralding the era of Smart Implant Technology with anticipated improved functionality and patient satisfaction.

Research Interests:

  • Smart Implant Technology:
    Development of emerging new technology using miniaturized chip technology in pressure-based knee and hip balancing and alignment surgical instrumentation. This technology aims at creating the first wave of smart implants, which should provide critical in-vivo clinical outcomes data for registries and future implant designs.
  • Minimally Invasive Surgery:
    Development and refinement of novel surgical approaches to hip and knee arthroplasty surgery: Northern Approach to the hip, modified subvastus approach to the knee, MIS mini posterior approach to the hip.
  • Computer Assisted Navigation:
    Development and clinical implementation and validation of infra-red based Computer Assisted Surgery of the knee and the hip.

Hospital Affiliations:

  • NYU Langone Medical Center
  • NYU Langone Hospital for Joint Diseases

Membership:

  • American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons
  • American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons
  • International Society for Computer Assisted Orthopedic Surgery
