Research Lab Results for surgical outcomes
Neuro-Oncology Surgical Outcomes LaboratoryLab WebsitePrincipal Investigator:
Raj Mukherjee, M.D., M.P.H.
Directed by Debraj “Raj” Mukherjee, MD, MPH, the laboratory focuses on improving access to care..., reducing disparities, maximizing surgical outcomes, and optimizing quality of life for patients with brain and skull base tumors.Research Areas: medical education, surgical outcomes, neurosurgery, machine learning, access to care, surgical coaching, population health, quality of life, public health, artificial intelligence, oncology, disparities
The laboratory achieves these aims by creating and analyzing institutional and national databases, developing and validating novel patient-centered quality of life instruments, leveraging machine learning and artificial intelligence platforms to risk-stratify vulnerable patient populations, and designing novel surgical trials to push the boundaries of neurosurgical innovation.
Our research also investigates novel approaches to improve neurosurgical medical education including studying the utility of video-based surgical coaching and the design of new operative instrumentation. view more
Spinal Column Surgical Outcomes LabLab WebsitePrincipal Investigator:
Ali Bydon, M.D.
The Spinal Column Surgical Outcomes Laboratory aims to improve the neurological outcomes and fu...nctional capacity of patients undergoing spinal surgery. We collect large-scale retrospective patient databases and prospective patient registries to report high-quality data relating to the outcomes of neurosurgical operations. The laboratory participates in the National neurosurgical Quality and Outcomes Database (N2QOD). This multi-institutional collaboration has set forth a 3-year prospective study to benchmark quality and surgical outcome measures across several academic institutions. The Spinal Column Surgical Outcomes Laboratory specializes in biostatistical analysis of large-scale clinical databases, studying the outcomes of traditional and novel spinal procedures, quality control and cost-effectiveness research and clinical trials relating to spinal surgery outcomes. view moreResearch Areas: spine
The Boss LabPrincipal Investigator:
Emily Boss, M.D., M.P.H.
Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery
The Boss Lab's research focus is on patient experience, health disparities, and surgical outcom...es and utilization. Studies include shared decision-making, communication, and patient/parent-reported outcomes for elective surgery in children; patient satisfaction metrics, outcomes, and health correlates in surgery and pediatrics; patient and family-centered care and communication in surgery and pediatrics; racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic disparities in pediatric surgical care utilization and outcomes; and quality and safety in pediatric surgical care view moreResearch Areas: communication, quality and safety in pediatric surgical care, disparities in pediatric care, pediatric surgical care, family-centered care
