Bio-Engineering Research

The Roth | McFarlane Hand & Upper Limb Centre at St. Joseph's Health Care has a comprehensive research program extending from bench-top experiments to clinical outcome studies. The Bioengineering Research Laboratory is focused on a wide range of studies, including joint kinematics, fracture and implant fixation, implant development, and tendon biomechanics.

The Bioengineering Research Laboratory is directed by Dr. James Johnson, a mechanical engineer, and orthopaedic surgeons Dr. Graham King and Dr. Nina Suh. We presently have six graduate students and numerous undergraduate students working in association with orthopaedic fellows and residents, on a wide range of biomechanical studies.
