Innovative Multi-center Research of the Ankle and Foot

Welcome to the Multicenter Arthroscopy Study of the Ankle and Foot (MASTAF) Study Group. We are a group of board certified, fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeons with a focus on the treatment of ankle and foot injuries. We practice and teach at some of the leading medical institutions in the world. We all have a strong interest in and focus on medical research.

As surgeons, we treat both the athletic and arthritic patients. Through this study, we aim to learn more about these populations.

We have assembled this innovative research group to evaluate ankle and foot injuries and treatment.

By pooling our individual patient data and outcomes, we are able to create a powerful research tool regarding the arthroscopic treatment of ankle and foot injuries.
