    Research Interests

    My research work is focused on the evaluation and treatment of scoliotic deformities in children and on the 3D evaluation and treatment of spinal deformities, with an emphasis on computer-assisted surgery, 3D design and evaluation of braces for the treatment of idiopathic scoliosis, as well as 3D evaluation and surgery simulation for scoliotic deformities. In addition, I conduct a research program on postural equilibrium and sagittal alignment of the spine and pelvis in children and adolescents with spondylolisthesis.
