Summit Orthopaedics in Portland, Oregon
Research & Publications
Orthopedic research is a major part of our work at Summit Orthopaedics. Collectively, we have authored multiple studies in research journals and book chapters. We have presented our research throughout the world at orthopedic meetings.
We are involved locally in the education of orthopedic residents and fellows, as well as teaching other surgeons from around the country and internationally.
Currently, we are working on clinical outcome studies for patients with ankle arthritis treated with ankle distraction arthroplasty, deformity correction, or ankle replacement. Additionally, we are evaluating new limb salvage methods for patients facing amputation due to neuroarthropathy (Charcot).
