The research interest is mainly focused on the development and evaluation of different joint preserving and replacing techniques for the hip and the knee. In particular the clinical outcome of innovative operative techniques for preservation of the hip as well as minimally invasive and navigated hip replacement is investigated. A second research field is the design of new revision implants for bone defect reconstruction in the acetabulum as well as primary implants for an optimized reconstruction of knee kinematics after total knee arthroplasty. Beside research activities with direct clinical impact, a third interest lays on the investigation of techniques for tissue regeneration for reconstruction of bone, cartilage and muscle with and without the use of matrices in vitro and in vivo.
