Research Activities

Dr. Campbell currently holds funding as a principle investigator from the Bruyère Academic Medical Organization and the Institute for Rehabilitation Research and Development. He is presently investigating the use of shoe lifts to correct leg length discrepancy (LLD) in patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty. LLD is a highly prevalent condition and is commonly associated with painful musculoskeletal conditions. A recent systematic review completed by Dr. Campbell revealed that the current evidence of shoe lift use is of low or very low quality. It is Dr. Campbell's hope to conduct high quality evidence into the use of shoe lifts, as they are a potentially inexpensive and simple solution to patient's pain. Please see below for other currently funded projects.
