Research

Research Interests

The Patellofemoral Center addresses the current lack of formalized research into patellofemoral disorders, treatments and outcomes. Our center focuses on clinical outcome studies that evaluate current surgical techniques and improve patient outcomes as well as develop new ones. The Center has taken a comprehensive approach to investigating patient outcomes in a variety of patellofemoral disorders and treatment procedures. By utilizing a combination of prospective, retrospective, and biomechanical studies, our group assesses the efficacy of current procedures and improves upon them to develop even better treatment options. The Patellofemoral Center is also focused on conducting collaborative research efforts with other institutions in the form of multi-center studies, in order to maximize the quality and power of patellofemoral patient data available. The comprehensive research efforts of the Patellofemoral Center play a critical role in improving the quality of life of the many patients suffering from knee pain and instability.

Specific areas of investigation include:

  1. Risk factors for failure of isolated soft tissue surgery for patellar instability
  2. Comparison of surgical versus non-surgical treatment in first time patella dislocators with open growth plates
  3. Evaluation of isolated MPFL reconstruction to treat patellar instability
  4. Evaluation of current surgical techniques on contact mechanics and pressures of different trochlear and patellar morphologies
  5. Evaluation of juvenile particulated cartilage to improve severe cartilage defects in the patella.
  6. Determining the effect of patellofemoral surgery on patella vascularity
  7. Measuring outcomes and quality of life in patients undergoing PFJ arthroplasty
  8. Determining outcomes including return to sport after MPFL reconstruction
  9. Evaluating tibial tubercle transfers in the management of patellar pain and arthritis
