Research

Mr Chowdhry has presented his research Internationally.

He is widely published in orthopaedic peer reviewed journals using many different methods of research.

This includes randomised controlled trials, matched cohort comparison studies, systematic reviews and case series.
He has also contributed to chapters in a number of orthopaedic textbooks.

Much of his more recent work has involved epidemiological research of sports and other orthopaedic problems.

This involves analyses of national databases such as the Trauma Audit and research Network (TARN) and the US based National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB). This generally involves the investigation of patterns for healthcare problems on the scale of country-wide populations.

He considers this to be important and widely applicable research that can help to formulate treatment pathways for sports injuries.
