Personal Bio

Treatment Philosophy

My primary goal is to restore my patients to a better quality of life and level of function through surgical treatment of hip and knee pathology. My main focus is on minimizing the time of patient recovery through surgical approach and the use of custom implants. New approaches such as anterior hip replacement cut zero muscle and minimize recovery time. I strive to personalize my approach to each patient, rather than approaching patients with a "cookie cutter" mentality. This applies to the operating room as well, where I balance more established, durable technologies, with newer advances in hip and knee replacement, based on a patient's individual goals.

Personal Interests

In my spare time, I enjoy playing tennis, swimming, and spending time with my wife and young son.

  • Effect of silver nanoparticle geometry on methicillin susceptible and resistant Staphylococcus aureus, and osteoblast viability.

    Journal of materials science. Materials in medicine 2015 Jul

    Authors: Actis L, Srinivasan A, Lopez-Ribot JL, Ramasubramanian AK, Ong JL
    Orthopedic implant failure as a result of bacterial infection affects approximately 0.5-5% of patients. These infections are often caused by Staphylococcus aureus which is capable of attaching and subsequently forming a biofilm on the implant surface, making it difficult to eradicate with systemic antibiotics. Further, with the emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, alternative treatments are necessary. Silver nanoparticles have received much attention for their broad spectrum antibacterial activity which has been reported to be both size and shape dependent. The purpose of this study was therefore to evaluate the effect of three different geometries on their effect on microbial susceptibility as well as evaluate their effect on bone cell viability. Silver nanoparticles of spherical, triangular and cuboid shapes were synthesized by chemical reduction methods. The susceptibility of S. aureus and methicillin-resistant S. aureus was evaluated a 24 h period and determined using a colorimetric assay. Further, the viability of human fetal osteoblast (hFOB) cells in the presence of the silver nanoparticles was evaluated over a period of 7 days by AlmarBlue fluorescence assay. hFOB morphology was also evaluated by light microscopy imaging. Results indicated that silver nanoparticle geometry did not have an effect on microbiota susceptibility or hFOB viability. However, high concentrations of silver nanoparticles (0.5 nM) conferred significant susceptibility towards the bacteria and significantly reduced hFOB viability. It was also found that the hFOBs exhibited an increasingly reduced viability to lower silver nanoparticle concentrations with an increase in exposure time.

  • Modularity of the femoral component in total hip arthroplasty.

    The Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons 2012 Apr

    Authors: Srinivasan A, Jung E, Levine BR
    Modular femoral components have been developed to aid in recreating native femoral version, limb length, and offset in total hip arthroplasty. Use of modular implants results in cost savings, as well. Inventory can be reduced while allowing intraoperative flexibility and options. With modular implants, the femoral prosthesis can be built in situ, which is helpful in minimizing incision length and surgical dissection. However, additional modular junctions are associated with increased concern for component failure through taper fretting, fatigue fracture, and local corrosion, which may contribute to elevated serum metal ion levels. The recent trend toward using larger diameter femoral heads may impart higher loads and stress than were seen previously. Although modular components offer a plethora of intraoperative options in primary and revision total hip arthroplasty, the long-term effects of these additional junctions remains unknown.
