Research and publications

Dr. Al-Niaimi's research interests include optimization of health outcomes, such as post-operative complications and the effect of patient medical comorbidities and surgical techniques on surgical and oncologic outcomes. He has published in numerous peer-reviewed journals and has been active in presenting research at national conferences. He is involved in many committees both locally and nationally focusing on both surgical outcomes as well as promoting surgical proficiency. He is also involved in many national courses as an instructor of surgical techniques for gynecologic oncologists.

Dr. Al-Niaimi created and is leading the Gynecologic Oncology Longitudinal Data Collection and Utilization Project (GOLD-CUP) for the division of Gynecologic Oncology at the University of Wisconsin. GOLD-CUP is a database containing health information from patients that have received medical care for gynecologic concerns at the UWHC Gynecologic Oncology, Radiation Oncology, and Medical Oncology Clinics. This database will be used to answer questions in the future concerning the relationships between patient factors and treatment variables on survival, health outcomes, and quality of life in gynecologic oncology patients.
