My main clinical interests are deformity correction, limb lengthening and the management of children affected with various neuromuscular conditions. The focus of my research is in 3 areas: Distraction Osteogenesis (DO), bone regeneration and tissue engineering as well as clinical research. In the field of Distraction Osteogenesis, I have been working on:

(1) How to decrease the post-operative pain and discomfort in patients undergoing DO – I am the PI on a large multicentre RCT with 6 centres, funded by the Shriners International for 5 years , the results will be presented as podium presentation at the next POSNA meeting.

(2) Elucidate the complex molecular changes and signaling pathways involved in DO, as well as non-unions and ectopic bone formation. The results of my studies have been published in several journals and most recently I have been invited to write a special article on this topic.

(3) How to accelerate the consolidation of newly formed bone in the distracted gap - using various techniques, specifically BMPs locally, sclerostin systemically (with Dr. F .Rauch),FGFR3 (with Dr. R. St-Arnaud), local TCP with Dr. J. Barralet

(4) Mechanotransduction, with Dr. I. Villemure, first to develop an external fixator for rat DO and then investigate how changes in the mechanical environment can affect bone formation

(5) What is the best radiological technique to monitor the consolidation of newly formed bone and how to decide when to remove the fixator? Specifically the use of DEXA and pixel value. In the field of regenerative medicine and tissue engineering:

(a) Nanotechnology - with Dr. M. Tabrizian, development of a nanoparticle chitosan alginate delivery

system for BMPs

(b) Hydrogel delivery system and scaffold – also with Dr. M. Tabrizian for the delivery of BMPs, injectable that solidifies in less than 2 seconds.

(c) Stem cell therapy – with Dr. I. Colmegna, to isolate stem cells from adipose tissue taken from children (IRB obtained), then expand and induce these cells into osteogenic and chondrogenic lineage.

(d) How to enhance the osteogenic effects of BMPs, by using siRNA to block endogenous BMP antagonists Noggin and Chordin, with Dr. P. Moffat. In clinical research, besides evaluating how to improve the outcome of patients undergoing DO, my other interests include how to evaluate children with cerebral palsy undergoing hip surgery, and the outcome of patients with cavus foot and Charcot-Marie Tooth disease.

As a member of the Division of Experimental Surgery, I have supervised or co-supervised numerous graduate students. I have developed numerous collaborations with scientists, as mentioned above. I have received several research awards, including peer salary awards from the Quebec Government, the Shriners Hospitals for Children (SHC), POSNA (Paediatric Orthopaedic Society of North America) and CIHR. At the International Level, I am the second vice president of the LLRS (Limb Lengthening and Reconstructive Society of North America). I am co-editor of a Monograph from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons: Management of Limb Lengthening Discrepancy, which is considered the state of the art resource in that field. I am a firm believer and supporter of the tripartite mission of the Shriners Organization: you cannot have excellence in patient care, without having excellence in teaching and research.
