Besides his clinical work, he is active in research, particularly in biomaterials ("spare parts for human body"). Together with the MEDICEM group, he examines development of hydrogels for the purpose of reconstruction of soft tissues, as well as materials intended for abdominal wall reconstruction. At the Military University Hospital in Prague, he explores experimental application of stem cells isolated from adipose tissues. The results of his work have been published in both national and international specialized papers.
