Lower Limb Program

Program Leaders

 

The aim of the Lower Limb Program is to explore factors affecting traumatic injuries affecting the pelvis and lower limb.  Research focused on improving patient outcomes is a priority. We encourage and facilitate investigator driven research relating to classifications, management and outcomes of lower limb traumatic injuries.

Current projects include:

  • Midfoot vs hindfoot outcomes in the multitrauma patients
  • Management and outcomes of tibial plafond fractures
  • Outcomes and costs of severe pelvic ring fractures
  • Costs and outcomes of femoral shalf and distal femur fractures in road trauma
  • Outcomes and costs of severe extremity injuries
  • Linkage of VOTOR with the AOA National Joint Replacement Registry (NJRR) for hip fractures
  • Outcomes of hip fracture in older patients
  • Functional outcomes of acetabular fracture fixation in patients over 60 years of age
  • Joint arthroplasty following tibial plateau fractures
