Orthopedic Staff Attend 37th Annual European Paediatric Orthopaedic Society Meeting

The 37th European Paediatric Orthopaedic Society (EPOS) annual meeting is taking place this week in Oslo, Norway. EPOS was founded in 1981 with a mission to enhance the quality of care provided to children with orthopedic conditions through research and education. The four-day meeting includes discussions, case studies and presentations on the latest in orthopedics from specialists all around the world.

With nearly 700 orthopedic specialists from 61 countries, members from Scottish Rite Hospital’s orthopedic team are among those participating in this year’s meeting. Staff orthopedists Anthony I. Ricco, M.D. and Lane Wimberly, M.D. and former orthopedic residents and fellows are representing the hospital. This year, more than 110 projects were accepted for presentation. Scottish Rite Hospital has been selected to present three projects on its latest foot and trauma research. The projects include:
  • Is subtalar steroid injection an effective treatment for symptomatic talocaneal coalitions? (Foot)
  • Plantar pressures in adolescents with symptomatic flexible flatfeet: how are they different from asymptomatic flatfeet? (Foot)
  • Pediatric elbow dislocations with a concomitant lateral condylar humerus fracture (Trauma)
As an institution, we are honored that our staff have the opportunity to share their expertise on an international stage. The European Paediatric Orthopaedic Society allows our team to collaborate with fellow medical professionals to better understand orthopedic conditions for children both here and around the world.
