Dr. Turgeon's research is aimed at improving the lives of people who have undergone hip and knee replacements. He uses innovative research methods, such as radiostereometric analysis, to gain a deeper understanding of how implant design, stability, and biomaterials affect clinical outcomes. Dr. Turgeon is particularly interested in developing new methods to prevent implant failure and improve the longevity of the replacement. He is a surgeon scientist at the Orthopaedic Innovation Centre, where he collaborates with other experts in the field, and a member of the Canadian RSA Network and the Concordia Joint Replacement Group. His research has been recognized by several awards and honors and his findings have been published in numerous high-impact journals.
