To improve patient care directly and rapidly, Dr. Bhashyam applies research methodologies from non-medical fields to study clinical and translational research topics in orthopaedic surgery. Recent interdisciplinary and innovative projects include studies on patient outcomes/quality improvement, surgical education, the role of socioeconomic factors in patient care, opioids in orthopaedics, and mathematical modeling. His current research has 3 focus areas:
- Outcomes/quality improvement in trauma and upper extremity surgery, especially the role of socioeconomic factors in patient care
- Surgical education
- Mathematical modeling and imaging, especially patient-specific simulation
