Thomas Jefferson Blumenfeld
Clinical Associate Professor, Orthopaedic Surgery
BioDr. Blumenfeld is a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon with a clinical focus on primary and revision hip and knee joint replacement surgery. He is a clinical associate professor of orthopaedic surgery at Stanford University School of Medicine.
Dr. Blumenfeld has performed more than 4,000 knee and hip replacement procedures. His expert technique, comprehensive experience, and careful attention to detail enable him to excel at both first-time and revision procedures. Over the course of his career, he has achieved and maintained a complication rate well below the national average.
He listens empathetically to all patients, seeking to understand the impact their condition has on their daily activities. He prepares a personalized treatment plan that corresponds to the needs of each patient.
In every case, Dr. Blumenfeld’s treatment goals are to help relieve pain, enhance function, and improve quality of life. He seeks to assure even firsttime patients that he is committed to helping them fully understand both their diagnosis and recommended treatment, as well as timeframe for recovery.
All patients follow-up at regular intervals for clinical and X-ray evaluations following surgery. Dr. Blumenfeld encourages patients to visit him at least once every two years for a preventive care evaluation.
In addition to delivering clinical care, Dr. Blumenfeld conducts extensive research. He has been a principal investigator on clinical trials of new hip replacement systems. He was also a clinical investigator testing a robotic surgical system for total hip arthroplasty procedures. The team that developed this breakthrough received the prestigious Computerworld Smithsonian Award for Innovation in the Arts and Sciences for Medicine. As a pioneer in robotic surgery, Dr. Blumenfeld selectively uses computer-aided navigation technology for planning and performing surgical procedures.
Most recently, Dr. Blumenfeld’s research has focused on how to help surgeons reduce complication rates. He is actively investigating how the long termcost of hip and knee replacement procedures may vary depending on how early a patient¬ is diagnosed and treated.
He has authored dozens of articles on advanced surgical techniques for hip and knee arthroplasty, new materials for surgical implants, prevention of surgery-related infection, and other topics. His work has appeared in publications including Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research, Journal of Arthroplasty, the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Hip International, and others. In addition to authoring book chapters on primary and revision hip replacement surgery, Dr. Blumenfeld has written a book that shares his perspective on managed care and physician-patient communication.
He serves on the editorial boards of the Journal of Arthroplasty, Arthroplasty Today, and Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research and is CME editor for Arthroplasty Today. He has been a member of the Adult Reconstruction–Knee Program Subcommittee and Hip Program Subcommittee for the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.
Dr. Blumenfeld has given presentations on advances in joint replacement surgery at the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons Annual Meeting, American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons Annual Meeting, and other conferences.

Mark S. Blumenkranz, MD, MMS
H. J. Smead Professor of Ophthalmology, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsClinical Interest and Research
My primary areas of interest are in the diagnosis, medical and surgical treatment of vitreal retinal diseases. These principally include age-related macular degeneration and other diseases of the macula, and tractional syndromes, diabetic retinopathy, and complex forms of retinal detachment. I have been interested in the development of novel technology to diagnose and treat these diseases, including new forms of imaging, laser delivery systems, other microsurgical tools, and new drugs and drug delivery systems that inhibit new blood vessel growth, scarring and intraocular inflammation. I have been actively involved in translational research in the laboratory as well as technology transfer associated with that research for a variety of new therapies that have received FDA clearance and been introduced into clinical practice over the past 30 years.
Administrative and Community Service
I have served on the Board of Directors of a variety of voluntary education and service organizations, including the Corporation of Brown University, multiple scientific advisory boards and various philanthropic and research organizations.

BioAdjoa Boateng is a physician, writer, purveyor of the arts and humanitarian. She completed her undergraduate degree and anesthesiology training at Yale, then undertaking a critical care fellowship at Stanford. Prior to her role as an anesthesiologist and critical care physician, Adjoa completed work in several facets of addiction medicine performing clinical research at the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, undertaking projects focusing on Hepatitis C in injection drug users, during her MPH degree she analyzed programs in Philadelphia which trained heroin users to inject Naloxone to mitigate overdose, and in medical school was selected among many to complete a prestigious training course at the renowned Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California, always seeking to assist the forgotten; those at the margins of society. Adjoa marries this to her current areas of interest, which include the intersection of medicine, the arts and the disadvantaged. She currently is investigating racial and ethnic disparities in critical care medicine.
Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, of Oceans and Senior Fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment
BioI am interested in pathogens in the environment including their sources, fate, and transport in natural and engineered systems. I am interested in understanding of how pathogens are transmitted to humans through contact with water, feces, and contaminated surfaces. My research is focused on key problems in both developed and developing countries with the overarching goal of designing and testing novel interventions and technologies for reducing the burden of disease.
I am also interested broadly in coastal water quality where my work addresses the sources, transformation, transport, and ecology of biocolloids - specifically fecal indicator organisms, DNA, pathogens, and phytoplankton - as well as sources and fate of nitrogen. This knowledge is crucial to formulating new management policies and engineering practices that protect human and ecosystem health at the coastal margins.

Hector Fabio Bonilla
Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - Infectious Diseases
BioAs a young physician at Louisiana State University, Dr. Bonilla focused on the Clinical Management of HIV/AIDS and HCV, two neglected and stigmatized diseases for which effective therapies were in their infancy. While learning the clinical aspects of the two diseases, Dr. Bonilla saw a need to create and organize a support community to promote understanding and management of the conditions. Subsequently, he went to Summa Health System in Akron, Ohio, and he continued his work where he specialized in HIV/HCV as well as in Infectious Diseases Clinical Practice. In addition to teaching medical residents and students, Dr. Bonilla participated in numerous clinical trials and developed clinical research projects. Furthermore, he led the Infection Renal Transplant Program, HIV and HCV clinics, and he participated in several cooperative studies with Case Western Reserve University. Dr. Bonilla’s interest in academia led him to the University Of Pittsburgh Medical Center where he was an Assistant Professor, Clinician, and Medical Educator in the Department of Medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases. Due to his interest in cytokines and immunological responses, Dr. Bonilla became a researcher at ImmunoScience Inc., a biotechnology company in California that works to develop a therapeutic HIV vaccine. Dr. Bonilla’s experience of treating HIV/HCV combined with his interest in inflammatory response is the driving force behind his desire to understand ME/CFS. Dr. Bonilla is a strong patient advocate, and he believes in integrated care—care in which physicians communicate and coordinate efforts to deliver the best medical outcome for patients. His ME/CFS patients are his inspiration, and he is committed to continuing research to seek answers to their health challenges.
