Dr. Assini is currently participating in multiple clinical studies. You may be asked by Dr. Assini or his team to participate. It is your choice whether you participate or not, but each study is being conducted to help improve total joint replacements and associated outcomes.
Current Research Studies
- Evaluation of new total knee implant for complex reconstruction and revision surgery. Multicenter 10 year analysis of the Evolution CCK Total Knee System.
- Long Term Analysis of Profemur Preserve femoral stem.
- Multicenter Randomized Study to compare ‘bikini’ incision anterior total hip arthroplasty with standard anterior hip arthroplasty. Analysis is centered around incision healing, numbness and patient satisfaction with scar appearance.
- Evaluation of new medication for prevention of blood clots after joint replacement.
- Evaluation of new medication to aid in the post-op pain control after joint replacement.
- 2020 Arthroplasty Fellow Meeting. Faculty speaker.
