His research has concentrated on factors affecting successful knee arthroplasty surgery. This has included studies on a novel implant coating to improve fixation in bone which has been rewarded with two prizes and was recently published within the journal Tissue Engineering. His current research is concentrating on the roles of Patient Specific Instrumentation in partial knee arthroplasty.
