Dr. Wilson investigates the links between joint mechanics, clinical symptoms, and the success of treatment procedures. His research makes connections between biomechanics and problems like osteoarthritis and chronic pain. In his research, Dr. Wilson uses many medical imaging procedures, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), fluoroscopy, and ultrasound. He also works to develop new, more accurate methods for measuring the biomechanics of the spine, hip, and knee based on these imaging techniques. Dr. Wilson’s work translates to functional improvements by improving surgical treatments for diseases and injury. Having a better understanding of the causes of these conditions allow researchers to outline risk factors and therefore provide more effective prevention and treatment strategies.
