Pediatric Orthopedic Surgery Research

The Division of Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine is engaged in many research studies to improve the bone health of children.

Joseph Janicki, MD, and colleagues performed a retrospective analysis of percutaneous radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for treatment of osteoid osteoma, and determined that in the population studied, RFA is safe and effective but may carry a risk for complications. Janicki contributed to a study of cotransplantation with spina bifida bone marrow stem/progenitor cells. The group, with first author Arun Sharma, PhD, of the Division of Urology, determined that this technique could enhance urinary bladder regeneration.
