Unfunded Projects

30 readmission and visits to the ER after Otolaryngology/ Head and Neck Surgery procedures across Ontario 2008 to 2013.  An ICES based study looking at rates and patterns by procedure groups, regions, hospital types,  specialty and length of stay.

Does Surgery for Colorectal Cancer, increase the risk of incisional hernias: an Ontario population-based study.  In association with my general surgery colleagues, this is an ICES based study comparing the rates of incisional hernia after bowel resection for cancer vs diverticular disease.

Patterns of followup after curative treatment for head and neck cancer.  An ICES based study on patterns of practice to see if variations in appointment schedules and imaging frequency improve outcomes.
