Research Interests

Serves as Director of the Foot and Ankle Injury Research [F.A.I.R.] Group and co-director of the Musculoskeletal Growth Regeneration Lab, with Dr. Hongshai Li.  My research involves regenerative bioengineering using stem cells and biomaterials, the biomechanical assessment of foot and ankle injuries and fixation techniques, as well as clinical outcomes research.  We have presented our research both nationally and internationally. Our research team has received the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) J. Leonard Goldner Award for best basic science research for work on tendon regeneration entitled:  “Successful Achilles Tendon Regeneration using a Bioresorbable Nanofiber Scaffold, Stem Cells, and Growth Factor in a Rat Tendon Gap Defect Model.”   In addition to my clinical and research practice, I serve as the foot and ankle consultant for the athletic departments at the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University, and Duquesne University, and also serve as the Assistant Team Physician for Point Park University and the Conservatory of Performing Arts.  Dr. Hogan was recently named to Best Doctors in America® in 2016.
