Roy Aaron, MD is professor of orthopedics and professor of molecular pharmacology, physiology and biotechnology at Brown University. He completed his orthopedic training in the Harvard Combined Orthopedic Program and a fellowship in joint replacement surgery at the Robert Brigham Hospital. Aaron completed two research fellowships at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), one studying surgical physiology and one in basic cartilage biochemistry. He founded both the orthopedic laboratory and the joint replacement service at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.

Aaron’s clinical interests focus on joint diseases, particularly on osteoarthritis and avascular necrosis, and conservative therapies for joint preservation. Recent clinical investigations have concerned the role of knee arthroscopy, contrast-enhanced MRI for early diagnosis of osteoarthritis, and the prevalence of coagulopathies in both osteoarthritis and avascular necrosis. In the laboratory, he has been investigating the contributions of circulatory pathology to the initiation and progression of osteoarthritis. 

Aaron has served on 35 national panels, including ten NIH study sections, and committees of the Arthritis Foundation, American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and Orthopedic Research Society. He has authored over 100 scientific and clinical papers and three books. Several years ago, he received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the New England Arthritis Foundation.
