Dr. Gladnick has authored over fifty publications, including scientific and review articles, textbook chapters, and meeting abstracts. His research interests include determining clinical outcomes after primary total hip and total knee replacement, and functional performance after complex revision surgery. He has written multiple articles involving the direct anterior approach, and now trains other surgeons, residents, and medical students in the technique.

Outside of work, Dr. Gladnick believes in giving back to the community. He has co-chaired the Arthritis Foundation annual benefit, and is involved with numerous charities and philanthropic organizations. He enjoys spending his spare time with his wife, Lisa, and their son, Grayson.
