Dr. Joo Han Oh is a Professor of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Seoul National University College of Medicine, and Chief of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery & Joint Reconstruction Center, Seoul National University Bundang Hospital, Korea. He served as a Secretary General of 13th ICSES in Jeju, Korea, and is the current president of the Korean Shoulder and Elbow Society. His main clinical fields are Shoulder surgery and Sports Medicine. He has interests in clinical and basic researches in various shoulder disorders, and he works for several organizations of sports, such as a professional baseball team in Korea and National team of swimming and ski.
He has received several feature international awards: Savio L-S Woo’s Young Researcher Award in the 11th International Symposium on Ligament and Tendon (ISLT-XI) in 2011, The 20 top-cited article published in the Arthroscopy journal between 2008~2011 (Prognostic Factors Affecting Anatomical Outcomes of Rotator Cuff Repair and Correlation with Functional Outcomes), Charles S Neer Award (Effect of the adipose-derived stem cell for the improvement of fatty degeneration and rotator cuff healing in rabbit model) in 2013, NIRA (New Investigator Recognition Award) winner in 2016 Annual Meeting of ORS, and the Best Poster Award in SECEC Annual Meeting, 2018.
His clinical researches are focused on rotator cuff-related studies. He is looking for the risk factors of rotator cuff tear and prognostic factors of enhancing surgical repair, and thereby, he tries to specify the surgical indications, to provide rationale of the certain procedure, and finally, to improve surgical outcomes. Recently, the increased number of shoulder arthroplasty leads him to manage this sort of patients, and he is interests in the Asian-specific implants and bone preserving shoulder arthroplasty.
His previous translational researches are concentrated on how to increase tendon-to-bone healing of repaired rotator cuff with chronic rotator cuff tear model of rabbit using adipose-derived stem cell, allogenic dermal fibroblast, PRP and hyper-cholesterolemia model, and others. These pre-clinical research studies are directly translated to clinical prospective study to confirm the results of animal studies. Also, he has lots of experience with biomechanical cadaveric studies to solve the clinical queries during practice and to validate surgical instruments and implants. These kinds of clinical, pre-clinical, and biomechanical research studies merge the “bench-to-bed” approach with individualized and multidisciplinary concept to achieve regional biological augmentation using cells and cytokines, to combine the systemic treatment such as parathyroid hormone injection for massive tears, controlling endocrine disease and stop using NSAIDs, or to develop the new concept of surgical technique with suture anchors and shoulder arthroplasty implants.
