Research Interests

Fellowship Grants

Courses and Meetings

I have attended an extensive number of research and practical courses and meetings, which helped develop and expand my interests in Arthroscopic, sports and reconstructive hip and knee surgery. I have also maintained my research interests in fracture healing and cartilage repair techniques.
