Stuart B. Goodman, MD, PhD
Dr. Goodman is a professor in the Division of Orthopaedic Surgery at Stanford University's School of Medicine.
Dr. Goodman specializes in orthopedic surgery with a special focus on arthritis surgery of the lower extremity, joint replacement and revision joint replacement of the hip and knee. His current research examines ways to improve adult reconstructive surgery including total joint replacement procedures, osteotomies, prosthesis design, the effects of mechanical stimulation on tissue differentiation, and the biological aspect of the interface between bone and orthopedic implants and biomaterials.
Dr. Goodman is the author of numerous medical journal and orthopedic textbook articles and sits on the editorial board of several medical and biomaterial publications. He was previously elected President of the Society for Biomaterials. He is also a member of several professional organizations including the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the Orthopaedic Research Society and the Association of Bone and Joint Surgeons.

Stuart Goodman, MD, PhD
Orthopaedic Surgeon
Dr. Goodman specializes in Orthopaedic Surgery and has a special interest in arthritis surgery of the lower extremity as well as joint replacement and revision joint replacement of the hip and knee.
Prior to joining Stanford in 1985, Dr. Goodman graduated from the University of Toronto in 1978, and completed his residency there in 1984. He then completed a fellowship in at Wellesley Hospital and Sunnybrook Medical Center in Toronto, Canada.
He is Board Certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and is a Fellow at the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada.
As an academic orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Goodman has been the author of numerous medical journal and orthopaedic textbook articles. His interests center on adult reconstructive surgery, including total joint replacement.
He sees patients and conducts research, and his current research focuses on total joint replacement, osteoarthritis, how bone interfaces with orthopaedic implants and biomaterials, and how mechanical stimulation effects mesenchymal tissue differentiation.
ScienceDaily News Release: Researchers Show COX-2 Inhibitors Interfere With Bone Growth, Healing, 20 Nov 2002 [cached]
The doctor sets it in a splint and prescribes one of these anti-inflammatory drugs (including COX-2 inhibitors) for pain," said Stuart Goodman, MD, professor of orthopaedic surgery at the Stanford School of Medicine and lead author of the study."We now know that could actually delay healing."
The enzyme Cyclooxygenase-2, or COX-2, is produced by the body in response to injury or inflammation.COX-2 inhibitors, including anti-inflammatory medications such as rofecoxib (Vioxx), celecoxib (Celebrex) and others, block production of this enzyme.Goodman's research shows that COX-2 inhibitors also impede the new bone growth that normally helps heal a fracture or stabilize a joint implant.
In the tibia bone of eight New Zealand white rabbits, Goodman and his team implanted a titanium device called a harvest chamber, which resembles a small screw.The device has a removable, hollow inner core that allows researchers to periodically extract the tissue growing inside.The growth of new bone into the chamber simulates healing of a fracture or joint implant.
Researchers gave the rabbits the following oral treatments for four weeks each: plain water; water with naproxen; plain water again; and sugar-coated pellets of rofecoxib (a COX-2 inhibitor).After each treatment, researchers removed the harvest chamber's core and extracted the tissue growing inside.After preserving the tissue in liquid nitrogen, the researchers sectioned and processed it with special stains including monoclonal antibodies, allowing them to see how new bone had grown back.
While acknowledging the limitations of animal research, Goodman said this study "has great applicability to humans, because the healing process is virtually the same" for rabbit and human bones.Goodman is having his own patients avoid COX-2 inhibitors for six weeks after a fracture or joint implant, and he recommends other physicians do the same."This research has very practical applications."
Goodman said his recommended six-week "time-out" period is an educated guess, because his study didn't address how long the bone-growth-suppressing effects of COX-2 inhibitors last.To answer that question, Goodman and his colleagues recently began a follow-up study.
