Kevin Toosi, MD, PhD received his Medical Doctorate in 1994 and went on to practice medicine as a Primary Care Physician for more than five years before attending the University of Pittsburgh where he earned his Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Bioengineering) and Master of Science in Bioengineering (Biomechanics track). He has also received a Doctor of Philosophy degree (PhD) in Bioengineering (Biomechanics track) from University of Pittsburgh. Currently, he is an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Toosi conducts clinical research to understand the mechanisms through which repetitive strain injuries of nerves and tendons occur and investigate the acute and chronic changes in the musculoskeletal systems by collecting and analyzing biomechanical data. His primary research interests include studying median nerve injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, and investigating the relationship between those injuries and biomechanical factors affecting wrist structure and function.
