Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Surgery

David T. Felson focuses on Osteoarthritis, Physical therapy, Internal medicine, Framingham Heart Study and Arthropathy. His Osteoarthritis study incorporates themes from Odds ratio, Magnetic resonance imaging and Surgery, Knee Joint. His Physical therapy research includes themes of Framingham Risk Score, Epidemiology, Arthritis, Confidence interval and Severity of illness.

His Epidemiology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Disease and Gerontology. His work on Internal medicine is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Endocrinology. His work deals with themes such as Cohort study, Bone mineral, Bone density, Cohort and Risk factor, which intersect with Framingham Heart Study.

His most cited work include:

  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 301 acute and chronic diseases and injuries in 188 countries, 1990-2013: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013 (6156 citations)
  • Disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) for 291 diseases and injuries in 21 regions, 1990-2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (5887 citations)
  • Years lived with disability (YLDs) for 1160 sequelae of 289 diseases and injuries 1990-2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (4886 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of study are Osteoarthritis, Physical therapy, Internal medicine, Knee pain and Surgery. His Osteoarthritis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Body mass index, Knee Joint, Radiography, Magnetic resonance imaging and Cartilage. The Radiography study combines topics in areas such as Orthodontics and Meniscus.

David T. Felson combines subjects such as Framingham Risk Score, Clinical trial, Arthropathy, Cohort study and Cohort with his study of Physical therapy. His study in Internal medicine focuses on Rheumatology, Rheumatoid arthritis, Framingham Heart Study, Odds ratio and Arthritis. The various areas that David T. Felson examines in his Knee pain study include Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Synovitis and WOMAC.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Osteoarthritis (75.20%)
  • Physical therapy (45.53%)
  • Internal medicine (37.29%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Osteoarthritis (75.20%)
  • Internal medicine (37.29%)
  • Knee pain (27.28%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

David T. Felson mainly focuses on Osteoarthritis, Internal medicine, Knee pain, Physical therapy and Radiography. His studies in Osteoarthritis integrate themes in fields like Body mass index, Synovitis, Magnetic resonance imaging and Cartilage. His research brings together the fields of Cardiology and Internal medicine.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Surgery, Weight loss, Radiology, Sagittal plane and Physical medicine and rehabilitation in addition to Knee pain. David T. Felson has researched Physical therapy in several fields, including Psychological intervention, Cohort study, Intervention, Randomized controlled trial and Confidence interval. In his research, Anatomy and Knee Joint is intimately related to Orthodontics, which falls under the overarching field of Radiography.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Knee osteoarthritis has doubled in prevalence since the mid-20th century (268 citations)
  • 2019 American College of Rheumatology/Arthritis Foundation Guideline for the Management of Osteoarthritis of the Hand, Hip, and Knee (229 citations)
  • Metabolic Syndrome, Its Components, and Knee Osteoarthritis: The Framingham Osteoarthritis Study. (76 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Disease

His primary scientific interests are in Osteoarthritis, Knee pain, Internal medicine, Physical therapy and Magnetic resonance imaging. His Osteoarthritis study combines topics in areas such as Body mass index, Synovitis, Cartilage and Radiography. His studies deal with areas such as Joint pain, Surgery, Knee Joint, Sagittal plane and Weight loss as well as Knee pain.

His research on Internal medicine frequently links to adjacent areas such as Cross-sectional study. His study in Physical therapy is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Incidence, Cohort study, Intervention, Demography and Confidence interval. His Magnetic resonance imaging study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Orthopedic surgery, Anatomy, Orthodontics, Disease and Prospective cohort study.
