Focusing on the hips and lower extremities, our research involves prospective and retrospective studies examining surgical outcomes. The goal is to refine surgical intervention and improve results of orthopedic procedures within the cerebral palsy and neuromuscular disorder populations. Data are collected in the Center for Gait and Movement Analysis using 3-D instrumented gait analysis to examine movement performance and surgical outcomes.
