Clinical interests center on joint diseases and bone circulation, particularly in OA and osteonecrosis. Recent studies have involved delineating the role of arthroscopy in OA and elucidating the role of bone marrow edema in joint pain. In the laboratory, Dr. Aaron is investigating aspects of the pathophysiology of OA focusing on circulatory disturbances in subchondral bone and the relationship of bone and cartilage abnormalities. He has recently obtained funds for a study of amniotic stem cells for cartilage replacement.
