Shady Elmasry joined Hospital for Special Surgery in August 2017 as a Postdoctoral Fellow. His main focus is evaluating the biomechanical function of the knee joint by integrating experimental robotic and knee simulator technology, 3D soft tissue and bone imaging, and physics-based computational modeling to improve clinical care through the development of subject-specific surgeries for total knee arthroplasty and ligament reconstruction. His research is conducted in collaboration with the Arthroplasty and Sports Medicine services.
Dr. Elmasry obtained his bachelor’s and master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Cairo University, and his doctoral degree in Biomechanics from the University of Miami in 2017. His doctoral research was focused on evaluating the biomechanical performance of the lumbar spine after surgery and to study different degenerative mechanisms for the intervertebral disc. His research was conducted in collaboration with researchers from the Max Biedermann Institute for Biomechanics at Mount Sinai Medical Center.
