Joseph T. Patterson, MD, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Keck School of Medicine of USC. His clinical expertise includes acute care of fractures of the pelvis, acetabulum, and upper and lower extremities as well as problem fracture care, including nonunion repair, correction of malunion and post-traumatic limb deformity, and management of osteomyelitis after trauma.\n\nDr. Patterson's research focuses on technological innovations, outcomes, and healthcare policy in skeletal trauma care, with particular interests in causal inference between technical surgical choices and outcomes in fracture surgery as well as social and economic determinants of access to trauma aftercare in the developed and developing worlds. He has received research grants from the National Science Foundation, Orthopaedic Research and Education Foundation, James O. Johnston Foundation, and AO North America as well as Young Investigator research awards from the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons and AO North America.
