Biomechanics Expert Witness Indiana 535638

Expertise Description

I am an experienced biomechanics expert witness with more than 35 years in the field. I specialize in medical devices, design control processes, failure modes and effects analysis, clinically relevant tissue loading, design safety assurance including device performance requirements and warnings, human joint reconstruction and skeletal trauma reconstruction, and orthopaedic implant system design and development (for trauma, spines, hips and knees). I have additional knowledge in the fields of Impact and Injury, applying the principles of engineering mechanics to understand basic biological processes and mechanisms related to the structure, function and injury thresholds of body tissues, with emphasis on bone and other skeletal tissues and organ systems such as the brain, skin, heart and abdominal organs. I have provided consultations, deposition, and courtroom testimony for over 15 years as a biomechanics expert witness.
