Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Paul Sherbondy is interested in patellofemoral instability research. He has investigated the use of magnetic resonance imaging to evaluate the offset between the trochlea of the femur and the attachment of the patellar tendon on the tibia. His research has helped to identify what degree of offset may be a risk factor of patellofemoral instability.

Additionally, his research in this area has looked at new measurement ratios which may be more accurate indicators of patellofemoral instability risk.

Dr. Sherbondy is also investigating the novel use of tissue suture anchors further repair of the distal biceps tendon.
