Dr. Kramer's research focuses on ethics, outcomes, and policy questions surrounding the use of medical devices.  His work has included qualitative studies evaluating stakeholder knowledge and perspectives regarding deactivation of cardiac devices; risk stratification for recipients of implantable cardioverter-defibrillators; clinical outcomes for defibrillator leads; and unique aspects of device-based therapy for older patients.  Dr. Kramer's health policy research has focused on the regulatory assessment of medical devices, including the strength of pre-market clinical evaluation for novel technology and comparative approaches to device regulation worldwide.
