She is interested in creation precision, point of care medical approaches to anticoagulation for patients post revascularization. Her clinical and outcomes research focuses primarily on diseases involving peripheral vascular disease, limb salvage and critical limb ischemia. She is part of a technology development team that creates tools to increase walking distance and wound healing while decreasing pain in patients with peripheral vascular disease. Dr. Dua is also involved heavily in surgical outcomes-based research using large medical databases to generate both quality outcomes and cost effectiveness data.
