Dr. Green is actively engaged in research at two of UCI's biomedical research labs. At the Biomechanic Lab at the Long Beach Veteran's Hospital, Dr. Green works with Thay Q. Lee, Ph.D. on problems related to the biomechanics of external skeletal fixation and internal internal fixation devices. In conjunction with Vincent Ciaozzo, Ph.D., Dr. Green studies the effect limb lengthening has on muscle tissue with the goal of reducing the complication associated with limb elongation.
Dr. Green is an orthopaedic surgeon whose subspecialty interest deals with post-trauma limb reconstruction including non-unions, malunions, shortening and post-trauma infections of bones and joints. His educational background includes not only a residency in orthopaedic surgery, but also a fellowship in infectious diseases. During the past 25 years, Dr. Green has lectured and published extensively on matters dealing with his area of expertise. He was the first American to visit Dr. G.A. Ilizarov in Kurgan, Russia and was instrumental in introducing the Ilizarov method of reconstructive surgery to the world's orthopaedic surgeons.
