Résumé Center for Hip and Knee Surgery
Stills I worked as an orthopedic research assistant at the St. Francis Center for Hip and Knee Surgery from summer 2006 through summer 2009. In that time, I authored a paper on hybrid total knee replacement published in Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research and a paper on the treatment of infected hip and knee replacments published in Orthopedics.

After graduation in May 2011, I returned to CHKS as a research assistant. I published a paper about the role of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) in total knee replacement in the British open-source journal Bone and Joint Research, and another paper, on the importance of pre-operative knee alignment in a successful knee replacement, has been accepted for upcoming publication in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, the most prestigious of orthopedic journals. I'm currently working on two projects, one on whether the surgeon (not the implant type) is more important in TKR success, and another on whether osteonecrosis is an independent predictor of failure in total hip replacement.
