Dr. Todd Kuiken has focused his 30-year career on the treatment and research in the area of amputation. With his team he developed the innovative surgical technique of targeted muscle reinnervation to improve the control of powered arm prostheses and reduce neuroma pain. He currently serves as Director Emeritus of The Regenstein Foundation Center for Bionic Medicine (CBM), the largest prosthetics and orthotics research lab in the country with a staff of more than 60 people, and is internationally recognized as a leader in his field. Dr. Kuiken is also committed to education. He lectures frequently and has mentored many graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
In February 2021, Dr. Kuiken retired from the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab after more than 25 years of service. He remains an active presence at CBM and continues to mentor the next-generation of scientists.
