Peter Larsen is a senior researcher at the Department of Orthopaedics and Occupational and Physiotherapy at Aalborg University Hospital. His primary research area is bone fractures of the lower extremities. He aims to understand 1) the development in QOL and function following bone fractures, 2) why some patients develop long-lasting severe pain, 3) identify risk factors of outcomes, 4) how to best treat patients following a bone fracture.
After finishing my PhD on tibial shaft fractures in 2015, I hold a PostDoc position focusing on research in lower extremity fractures. Together with Dr. Rasmus Elsøe I established the Lower Extremity Research Group in the Despartment of Orthopaedic Surgery at Aalborg University Hospital with the aim to improve orthopaedic trauma care and established high quality research in the field of traumatic orthopaedic injuries.
Current I hold a senior-researcher position at the Department of Orthopaedics and Occupational and Physiotherapy at Aalborg University Hospital.
