I am interested in the surgical treatment of patellofemoral instability as well as anterior knee pain.  I have done and am currently participating in research into clinical outcomes following patellofemoral surgery.  I have also done and am currently participating in radiographic and biomechanical based research around patellofemoral pathology.  In addition, I have done and am currently participating in research focusing on rehabilitation following patellofemoral injury or surgery.
I am very excited about the opportunity to participate in the patellofemoral traveling fellowship.  I look forward to building on the foundation of patellofemoral understanding that I currently have through observation and discussion with other patellofemoral surgeons.  I also look forward to getting to know other patellofemoral surgeons better, with the hope for future collegial exchange and possible research collaboration. — Marc Tompkins, MD

My current areas of PF interested include using the power of multicenter cohort studies to answer key questions surrounding the treatment of patellar instability. Through multi-center collaboration, we can greatly shorten the time needed to collect patients and outcomes and hopefully soon provide some definitive answers to two key questions: 1. Which patients who suffer a first time patellar dislocation would benefit from early reconstructive surgery? and 2. When is an MPFL reconstruction sufficient to restore patellofemoral stability? By answering these key basic questions, we can facilitate patients' return to activity while minimizing both potential surgical morbidity and time loss from activity.
