Dr. Rubash has made significant contributions to the study of biomechanics and failure mechanisms of joint arthroplasty in the hip and knee in order to develop better implant designs, simplify operative implant techniques, and develop new materials for implant-bearing surfaces, including the successful development of new reconstructive techniques.
Dr. Rubash is interested in revision total hip arthroplasty with major bone loss, revision total knee arthroplasty with component malalignment and infection, and avascular necrosis of the hip, a devastating disease that often affects young people in the primes of their lives. He has developed several new reconstructive techniques for acetabular fractures, acetabular and femoral component revisions, revision knee surgeries, and periprosthetic osteolysis.
