The main focus of our research activities is on Application of Engineering Principles in the Treatment of Tissue Damage. Our research involves:

  •  The development of novel fracture risk assessment techniques 
  •   Determining the ideal properties of an augmentation material for treatment of such fractures 
  •  The generation of a composite material, which is optimized for tissue ingrowth, that inherents the above determined properties and can be used as augmentation material for preventive treatment.  Kinematic models of joints using virtualized reality supplements the post-operative predictability of the treatment outcome.


Established clinical collaborations with the following groups facilitate the clinical implementation of our research findings: MD Anderson Cancer Center / Department of Neurosurgery, MD Anderson Cancer Center / Department of Anesthesiology, the University of Texas / Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Baylor College of Medicine / DeBakey Department of Surgery, Methodist Hospital and Methodist Hospital Research Instittue, St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital / Center for Orthopaedic Research and Education and Ohio State University / Department of Neurosurgery.
