Research Summary:

Dr. Henry’s research is focused on clinical outcomes. It is split between two topics in which he has clinical expertise: orthopaedic trauma and shoulder reconstruction. He is completing his PhD; his thesis is on massive tears of the rotator cuff. He is also involved in several randomized controlled trials, including studies on distal radius fractures, rib fractures and thigh bone fractures. He is also on an international multispecialty team of physicians planning to launch a trial studying post-surgical radiation for pathologic fractures of the lower extremities.
