ANDREW BENJAMIN WEISS

Harbor/UCLA Medical Center, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery
2001 Evaluated the Intramedullary Hip Screw, IMHS, for the treatment of proximal femur fractures, under the supervision of Daniel Zinar, M.D.
Cedars-Sinai Laser Research Center, Los Angeles, CA
1996 Under the supervision of Warren Grundfest, M.D., Director of the Laser Research Center, measured perfusion of myocardium, in-vivo, utilizing laser induced fluorescence spectroscopy. Surgically prepared rabbits and positioned laser, for analysis of tissue oxygenation during various physiologic manipulations.
1992 Participated in multiple research projects, including in-vivo studies of the thermal effects of the Holmium:YAG and Eximer lasers on bladder, stomach, lungs, and skin to evaluate their application

in endoscopic surgery.


1991 Evaluated the orthopaedic applications of the Thullium:YAG laser in joint surgery. Used laser energy to ablate both hyaline and fibrous cartilage of the in vitro bovine knee and then assessed thermal damage.
