The following projects are currently underway through the funding of Desert Orthopedic Research Foundation.

  1. Validation of the reduced dislocation rate using the “Capsular Noose” technique developed for Mini-incision Total Hip Replacements.  (Dislocations are rare with this technique)
  2. Determination of the causative factors for the occasional squeaky ceramic hip.
  3. Development of better instrumentation to balance knee ligaments after Mini-incision Total Knee Replacement (in order to reduce long-term pain and sensations of knee instability).
  4. Development of better methods and instrumentation to ensure accurate equalization of leg lengths after Mini-incision Total Hip Replacement.
  5. Determination of the accuracy of digital radiographs vs. standard radiographs for pre-operative planning for total hip replacement.
