Research

A clinical prospective study of 20 cases of LUMBAR CANAL STENOSIS. This study lasted over period of 30 months and it was submitted and accepted as partial fulfilment for MS in orthopaedics. This project gave me experience in organising a research project, submitting a protocol and review of literature.

I am working on a Research project. The aim of the study is "The effect of baseline Vitamin D level in the outcome of treatment in patients with Osteoporosis". I have gone through 850 patients out of whom 84 had definite osteoporosis. The research didn’t show any correlation with Vitamin D level and outcome with treatment. We are exploring it further to find out any other correlations like age, body weight etc.
