  • Sean Tabaie, M.D., M.S., M.B.A., F.A.A.O.S.,'s research focuses promoting diversity, equity and inclusion and advancing innovation in pediatric orthopaedics. In the last two years, he has published over 50 peer-reviewed manuscripts, focusing on topics such as surgical outcomes in underserved populations, healthcare disparities in pediatric orthopaedics, and novel treatment approaches for children with cerebral palsy. These publications not only have contributed to the scientific literature but also serve as a platform to address the gaps in knowledge and advocate for equitable access to care for all patients.

    Additionally, Dr. Tabaie is focused on advancing the field of pediatric orthopaedic surgery through the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. He believes that these emerging technologies have the potential to revolutionize diagnosis, treatment planning, and outcomes in pediatric orthopaedics. His current research projects focus on leveraging AI algorithms and predictive modeling to enhance surgical decision-making, optimize patient care, and improve long-term outcomes. Dr. Tabaie is also a Principal Investigator with the Cerebral Palsy Research Network, a collaboration aimed to improve treatments and outcomes for Cerebral Palsy patients.
