What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Surgery
  • Internal medicine
  • Orthopedic surgery

His primary areas of study are Surgery, Physical therapy, MEDLINE, Orthopedic surgery and Evidence-based medicine. Kevin C. Chung works mostly in the field of Surgery, limiting it down to concerns involving Quality-adjusted life year and, occasionally, Decision analysis. Kevin C. Chung interconnects Patient satisfaction, Hand surgery, Rheumatoid arthritis and Arthroplasty in the investigation of issues within Physical therapy.

His MEDLINE research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Quality, Guideline and Plastic surgery. The study incorporates disciplines such as Thumb, Prospective cohort study, Amputation and Receiver operating characteristic in addition to Orthopedic surgery. His Evidence-based medicine study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Systematic review, Evidence-based practice, Health care and Reconstructive surgery.

His most cited work include:

  • The Levels of Evidence and their role in Evidence-Based Medicine (646 citations)
  • Reliability and validity testing of the Michigan Hand Outcomes Questionnaire (640 citations)
  • The frequency and epidemiology of hand and forearm fractures in the United States (480 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Surgery, Physical therapy, Hand surgery, MEDLINE and Health care. His research in Plastic surgery, Orthopedic surgery, Wrist, Retrospective cohort study and Thumb are components of Surgery. Kevin C. Chung combines subjects such as Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Rheumatoid arthritis, Arthroplasty and Patient satisfaction with his study of Physical therapy.

Many of his studies on Arthroplasty involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Metacarpophalangeal joint. Kevin C. Chung studies Evidence-based medicine, a branch of MEDLINE.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Surgery (38.72%)
  • Physical therapy (19.14%)
  • Hand surgery (12.30%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Hand surgery (12.30%)
  • Surgery (38.72%)
  • Health care (7.91%)

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

Kevin C. Chung focuses on Hand surgery, Surgery, Health care, MEDLINE and Physical therapy. His Hand surgery study incorporates themes from Psychological intervention, Nursing, Family medicine, Health policy and Quality management. His Retrospective cohort study, Internal fixation, Replantation, Complication and Arthroplasty study are his primary interests in Surgery.

His work deals with themes such as Quality, Epidemiology, Public health and Medical emergency, which intersect with Health care. His Physical therapy research integrates issues from Wrist and Amputation. Kevin C. Chung works mostly in the field of Wrist, limiting it down to topics relating to Randomized controlled trial and, in certain cases, Evidence-based medicine, as a part of the same area of interest.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Assessment of Distal Radius Fracture Complications Among Adults 60 Years or Older: A Secondary Analysis of the WRIST Randomized Clinical Trial. (16 citations)
  • An Analysis of Differences in the Number of Children for Female and Male Plastic Surgeons. (16 citations)
  • Variation in the Treatment of Distal Radius Fractures in the United States: 2010 to 2015. (16 citations)

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

  • Surgery
  • Internal medicine
  • Orthopedic surgery

Kevin C. Chung spends much of his time researching Surgery, Physical therapy, Health care, Wrist and Hand surgery. He brings together Surgery and Aortic valve replacement to produce work in his papers. His Physical therapy research incorporates themes from Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System, Quality of life, Amputation and Trauma patient.

His Health care research includes elements of Ambulatory, Emergency medicine, Public health and Quality of life. The concepts of his Wrist study are interwoven with issues in Clinical trial, Randomized controlled trial, Grip strength and Hand therapy. His studies deal with areas such as Quality, Health care quality, Thumb, Medicaid and General surgery as well as Hand surgery.
