Journal Article Abstracts

The doctors at the Soft Tissue Center have published research articles.  There will be more articles published each year, so this portion of the website will be continually updated.  A journal article cannot be reprinted in its entirety on a website because the article belongs to the publishing house.  So, the articles we have published are listed below and only the abstract (summary) is included.  Should you wish to read the entire article, you now have the reference information to obtain it.
