Dr. Labow's research interests focuses on genetics of congenital hand anomalies, the association between Fanconi anemia and congential hand anomalies, and adolescent breast disorders.
Dr. Labow is currently conducting a clinical research study on benign breast disorders in adolescents. The broad goal of this project is to measure treatment outcomes in adolescent patients with breast disorders such as macromastia, gynecomastia, tuberous breast deformity and breast asymmetry. Dr. Labow will prospectively study long-term functional and psychosocial outcomes following treatment of male and female adolescents affected by benign breast conditions through the administration of validated questionnaires.
