Spinal Surgery Outcomes Laboratory


The Spinal Surgery Outcomes Laboratory seeks to understand how various spinal surgical procedures and disease management strategies affect patient clinical outcomes. By applying statistical methodologies to large patient data sets we hope to discover novel findings that help advance spine surgery clinical practice and improve patient outcomes. Current research areas include: minimally invasive spine surgery, endoscopic spine surgery, spinal trauma, spinal tumors, spinal infections, spinal deformity and degenerative spinal disease.

We work in partnership with the RIH 3D lab developing 3D segmental models of the spine for patients with possible spinal instability. We use these models to perform quantitative biomechanical analysis of different spine pathologies to determine if instability is present.
