Dr. Ouanes' clinical research focus has been under the mentorship of Dr. Fritz Sieber (Chair of Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center). Together they studied the role of regional anesthesia in identifying and optimizing the anesthetic management of the elderly patient undergoing orthopedic and vascular surgical procedures.
In addition, Dr. Ouanes was the Johns Hopkins site principal investigator (2016-2019) for a pragmatic international, multi-center trial investigating regional versus general anesthesia in hip fracture patients (REGAIN trial).
One of the goals of HSS is to advance the science of orthopedic surgery, rheumatology, and related disciplines for the benefit of patients. Physicians at HSS may collaborate with outside companies for education, research and medical advances. HSS supports this collaboration in order to foster medical breakthroughs; however HSS also believes that these collaborations must be disclosed.
As part of the disclosure process, this website lists physician collaborations with outside companies. The disclosures are provided by information provided by the physician and other sources and are updated regularly. Further information may be available on individual company websites.
