Kerwin, Sharon individual record
Professor and Associate Department Head

I have been a practicing veterinary orthopedic and spine surgeon since 1992, with expertise in arthroscopy, trauma of the long bones and spine, angular limb deformity, and joint stabilization. From the research perspective, my experience has included biomechanics, bone grafting, spinal cord injury and gait analysis. My board certification in neurology has allowed a more in-depth perspective on gait analysis, spinal biomechanics, and the considerable crossover that occurs between orthopedic and neurologic disease.
