Area of Interest

General Sports Medicine, Treatment of Sports Injuries to the Hip, Knee, Ankle, Foot, Shoulder, Elbow, and Hand
Dr. Slauterbeck's clinical practice is dedicated to injury prevention and management of all aspects of pediatric, adolescent and active adults with sports injuries.

Expertise

Knee expertise: All knee ligament reconstruction, cartilage injury repair and restoration, meniscus repaird and transplant.
Shoulder expertise: Rotator cuff repair, instability repair.
General sports: Fasciotomy for compartment syndrome.

Research Interests

Dr. Slauterbeck has teamed up with Bruce Beynnon, PhD in clinical research investigating the risk factors for knee ligament injury, ACL injury prevention and determining risk factors for the development of osteoarthritis after knee ligament injury. His basic science research activities include the study of the influence of sex hormones on knee ligament remodeling, and on the material properties, size and shape of the ACL.
