Faculty Publications

As part of an academic facility, our faculty work hard to bring the knowledge they gain through clinical outcomes studies, laboratory research, and resident education, to others by publishing their work. Remaining at the forefront of cutting-edge research ultimately translates into improved patient outcomes, and defines tomorrow's diagnosis and treatment methods.

View recent publications by our faculty in peer-reviewed journals, online journals, book chapters, video publications, and various other mediums.
