Research interests

Dr. Xia’s research focuses on ongoing trials of new methods to utilize advanced imaging, computer modeling, and surgical navigation to result in making major facial and skull surgeries safer, faster, and more successful. He was a Methodist Hospital Research Institute Research Scholar and has ongoing NIH support for his computer surgical simulation work in cranio-maxillofacial surgery (with Dr. Jaime Gateno of TMH). He and Dr. Gateno have developed system called Computer-Assisted Surgical Simulation (CASS) that aids in surgical planning for these major facial surgeries.
