Hospital Doctors Present Latest Research at Annual Meeting

This week, doctors and past trainees are in Keystone, Colorado attending the 60th Society of Military Orthopaedic Surgeons (SOMOS) annual meeting. SOMOS is a medical organization comprised of orthopedic and trauma surgeons who are dedicated to research and innovative surgical techniques to advance the provision of orthopedic care to members of the United States military. The annual meeting brings together surgeons from around the globe to discuss and share the latest in surgical advances. 

Pediatric orthopedic surgeon and director of resident education Anthony I. Riccio, M.D., is an active member within SOMOS and a veteran of the United States Navy. He completed his internship in general surgery at the National Naval Medical Center, was the Director of Pediatric Orthopedics and Scoliosis Surgery at Naval Medical San Diego and works closely with our hospital’s trauma patients. This year, alongside past residents and fellows, Riccio is presenting the hospital’s latest research.
  • Can Real Time Monitoring with a Controlled Advancement Drill Decrease Plunge Depth? 
  • Pediatric Elbow Dislocations with a Concomitant Lateral Condylar Humerus Fracture 
  • Metaphyseal Fracture Displacement is Predictive of Intra-Articular Diastasis in Adolescent Triplane Ankle Fractures 
  • Healing Potential of Weight-Bearing Versus Non-Weight-Bearing Juvenile Osteochondritis Dessecans Lesions of the Lateral Femoral Condyle
  • Effect of Distal Ulna Osteochondroma Excision and Distal Ulnar Tether Release on Forearm Deformity in Preadolescent Patients 
“SOMOS is unique in that it provides an opportunity for military and civilian leaders in orthopedic surgery to collaborate and learn from one another,” says Riccio. “The group brings together surgeons from different backgrounds with the explicit aim of improving health care delivery to our service men and women. It is an honor to be selected to showcase the hospital’s research while also giving our residents and fellows the chance to present projects they worked on during their time at Scottish Rite Hospital.”
