Dr. Daniel Kim’s research involves detailed analyses of craniocervical and spinal anatomical relationships and the development of novel instrumentation for stabilization of the spine. This work is performed in collaboration with the Stanford Anatomy Laboratory, Surgical Navigation Program and the Cyberknife Radiosurgery Program.

Current research projects include the following:

  • Clinical outcome analysis of instrumentation for cervical fusion
  • 3D Image Computer-Navigated Spinal Surgery
  • Minimally Invasive Endoscopic Spinal Surgery
  • Biomechanics of the Spine
  • Spinal Fusion Utilizing BMP and GDF-5
  • Nerve Growth Factor Studies
  • Microsurgical Anatomy of the Spine and Peripheral Nerve
  • Spinal Cord and Peripheral Nerve Regeneration Studies
  • Radiosurgery for Spinal Tumors
