Dr. Stewart’s research interests lie primarily in Orthpaedics in the areas of Joint Replacement and Trauma.
- Joint Replacement
Dr Stewart conducts research into the functional aspects of joint replacement ( Hip, Knee) (mechanics, fixation, materials, friction, lubrication and wear).
Dr Stewart conducts research into the mechanics and remote monitoring of load support in trauma devices and their effects on bone healing and local joint mechanics (shear).
For a better idea of his research have a look through his publications. Most of his research involves applying fundamental engineering knowledge towards improving the field of medicine. Most of Dr. Stewart’s research involves direct collaboration with local surgeons in the Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust, and staff from the Faculty of Medicine and is supported by the Leeds Biomedical Research Centre that funds healthcare professionals to support fundamental research.
