Dr. Lentz is a physical therapist and health services researcher with an interest in individual and health care system-level factors that influence patient-reported outcomes, opioid use, health care utilization, and costs following orthopedic injury and surgery.

His work focuses on improving care for people with musculoskeletal pain by 1) developing tools to evaluate psychological distress and behavioral needs in clinical practice, 2) re-designing care models to account for multi-morbidity, and 3) identifying and addressing health system barriers to high-value care.
