Dr. Aaron Daluiski is a clinician-scientist specializing in Hand and Upper Extremity surgery. He received his medical degree from the University of California, Los Angeles, and completed his clinical training in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at UCLA. Dr. Daluiski has also completed a research fellowship concentrating on the molecular aspects of limb development and bone biology. He has completed the Hand and Upper Extremity clinical fellowship at Hospital for Special Surgery. His current research interests include the isolation and study of genes involved with fracture healing and limb development.

We are currently involved with several projects involving fracture healing. Using gene chip technology we are exploring the molecular mechanisms for fracture healing in order to improve clinical care for our patients with fractures.
