Michael D. McKee


Associate Scientist, Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute


My interest is in the care of fractures, post-traumatic reconstruction and malunion/nonunion. I have a particular interest in randomized clinical trials in fracture care, especially of the upper extremity.

Please note: Dr. McKee is not taking any summer students in 2018.
