With 450+ peer-reviewed publications and 2000+ lectures to date, Dr. Romeo has contributed to thought-leadership, education, and innovation in the treatment of shoulder arthritis, rotator cuff tears, ligament tears, fractures, and more. Below, you’ll find links to some of his recent presentations and accompanying materials.
Evidence-Based Approach to the Shoulder Examination
Physical examination of the shoulder is critical to understanding why a patient is unhappy with their shoulder function. This presentation presents the basic principles of examining the shoulder for problems related to motion, strength, stability, and function. While there are many different types of tests, this presentation focuses on exam maneuvers associated with a higher ability to predict the pathology of the shoulder.
How can we get the Rotator Cuff to Heal? Balancing Biomechanics and Biology
Rotator cuff tears are complex and highly individualized. Despite 30 years of innovation and technology, achieving tendon-to-bone healing remains challenging with 10-20% of single tendon repairs failing, and two tendon tears having an alarming rate of failing in 1/3 or more cases. In this presentation, learn how to assess and repair various types of rotator cuff tears using our best understanding of biomechanics—all while leveraging the body’s biology as well as augmenting with proteins, cells, scaffolds, and grafts.
Anatomic Total Shoulder Arthroplasty in 2022: Indications, Technique, Post-Operative Protocol and Expected Outcomes
We can offer our patients better care than ever with many recent advances in TSA procedures. Recently, Reverse Total Shoulder Arthroplasty has gained favor in treating not only patients with rotator cuff arthropathy, but also osteoarthritis with an intact rotator cuff, and now represents more than 50% of all shoulder replacements. In this presentation, learn about the current indications and techniques related to anatomic shoulder replacement, including stemless designs and augmented glenoids, with outcomes that are supporting their continued use in patients with osteoarthritis and a functioning rotator cuff.
Arthroscopic Treatment Options for the Athlete’s Elbow
The technical skills for elbow arthroscopy are much different from those for other joints, and the consequences of lapses in technique can be devasting due to the proximity and risk of nerve injury. However, this presentation will focus on advances in the understanding of the pathology and safe arthroscopic techniques that equal or surpass well-accepted open techniques, establishing effective arthroscopic treatment of the thrower’s elbow, osteochondritis dissecans of the capitellum, tennis and golfer’s elbow, as well as stiff and arthritic elbows.
