Research Description

Dr. Deland has several areas of investigation. Of these, Tibial Posterior Tendon dysfunction, known as the common cause of adult deformity flatfoot, is among the most primary. Dysfunction of the Posterior Tibial Tendon (PTT) has become a common clinical problem; the potential complexity of the deformity and disability it can cause patients afflicted with it has been well noted. This topic became a major field of Dr. Deland's research studies.

Additionally, Dr. Deland's interests are concentrated on osteohondral and arthritic lesions of the ankle, hindfoot and achilles tendon problems, and forefoot problems such as bunions, neuromas, and lesser toe deformities.
