Research Projects

1988-90: William Primos, MD, and Greg Landry, MD, completed a pilot project looking at spleen size and infectious mononucleosis. This study was presented as an abstract before the Ambulatory Pediatric Association, Adolescent Medicine (Joint Session with APS/SPR) in Anaheim, CA in 1990. This important study is used by sports medicine and primary care physicians when advising an athlete suffering from infectious mononucleosis in return to their sport.

1990-92: Jorge Gomez, MD, Greg Landry, MD, and David Bernhardt, completed a study looking at the usefulness of the two minute orthopedic screening exam as a screening tool in the preparticipation physical exam. This study was published: Critical Evaluation of the Two-Minute Orthopedic Screening Examination. American Journal of Diseases in Children 1993; 147:1109-13.

1992-94: David Bernhardt, MD completed a pilot study looking at potential markers of bone mineral density in amenorrheic athletes. This study was funded by the General Clinical Research Center and Department of Pediatrics Research and Development Funds. The study involved several faculty in the medical school. This study was presented at the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine National Meeting, June 1996, Orlando, FL.

1994-96: Cyd Charisse Williams, MD did not complete a project on prevention of second teen pregnancy due to lack of funding.

1996-98: Wendi Johnson, MD completed a pilot project on a mini neuropsychological test to establish baseline data that can be followed up after head injury among UW soccer players.

1998-99: Teri Metcalf, MD started a double-blind placebo controlled cross-over study on the usefulness of a topical anti-inflammatory agent for lateral epicondylitis.

2000-2002: Kathleen Carr, MD completed a project on exercise in the postpartum period, "Factors Influencing Physical Activity by Postpartum Women."

2002-2004: Rebecca Demorest, MD researched sports medicine education in pediatric residency programs and her findings were published in Pediatrics in 2005.

2004-2006: Kelsey Logan, MD researched blood pressures taken during pre-participation physicals and how abnormal blood pressures were followed. Her results were exhibited at the 2006 AMSSM National Meeting.

2006-2008: Margaret Alison Brooks, MD, MPH conducted a pilot study evaluating musculoskeletal outcome instruments in adolescent athletes with low back pain. She submitted this pilot data in her NIH K23 Career Development Award grant application. Dr. Brooks also completed a study on skiing and snowboarding injuries in terrain parks, which was presented at the 2nd World Congress on Sports Injury Prevention in Tromso, Norway, June 2008.

2006-2008: John Wilson, MD conducted a pilot research project investigating the efficacy of hydrotherapy and physical therapy for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis. The results of this pilot project were presented as a poster at the 2007 Wisconsin Physical Therapy Association annual meeting in Lake Geneva, WI. Dr. Wilson also conducted a research project investigating AED prevalence and emergency preparedness for sudden cardiac arrest in Wisconsin high schools. Preliminary findings were presented as a poster at the 2008 AMSSM annual meeting in Las Vegas, NV.

2007-2010: Andrew Peterson, MD conducted a pilot research project about office-based clinical intervention using motivational interview techniques to treat pediatric under-fitness and obesity.

2009-2011: David Smith, MD is conducting a research project on “The effect of concussion on academic and school performance in the adolescent,” for which he received a Thrasher Research Fund Early Career Award.

2010-2011: Katherine Dahab, MD completed a retrospective chart review in collaboration with musculoskeletal radiology at UW for a project focusing on the clinical findings associated with MRI changes of Hoffa’s fat pad. The abstract was presented at ISS 9/2011 and research paper was accepted for publication in AJR. She also worked on a multi-center study assessing the perception of pressure in youth sports.

2012-2013: Masaru Furukawa, MD conducted a study looking at whether or not bicycle helmets effectively prevent head injuries in bicyclists treated at UW Hospital. Analysis was completed, a poster was presented at AMSSM and an abstract was accepted for presentation at the 2013 AMSSM conference. The manuscript for this work will be submitted to Injury Prevention. He also conducted an IRB approved study regarding sudden deaths in triathletes. The data from the survey which was electronically mailed to ~1500 race directors across the country is now being analyzed and the findings will be submitted for AMSSM 2014.
