Dr. Bindi J. Naik-Mathuria is committed to providing the finest patient-oriented care with specific sensitivity to the needs of pediatric trauma patients and their families. This vision combines dedication to advanced research, exceptional education, and the development of newer, better treatments and procedures. Dr. Naik-Mathuria has specialized expertise in the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders and anorectal malformations. She is Board Certified in Surgery and Pediatric Surgery.
Her research interest is in pediatric trauma; specifically in the areas of quality improvement and outcomes. Our team develops protocols to improve our hospital's pediatric trauma program, and then studies the effects of the protocols. Additionally, we study outcomes from various aspects of pediatric trauma based on our hospital registry as well as national data registries. We are also involved with several multicenter prospective studies in order to understand the best options for optimal care of pediatric trauma patients. Residents would also have the opportunity to participate in injury prevention studies and community interventions, as well as in educational projects. Obtaining a degree in masters in public health concurrently with the research time would be an ideal complement, but is not a requirement.
