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.
Examination of the Shoulder
Physical exam remains an essential aspect of diagnosing shoulder conditions. In this presentation, learn how to use observation and inspection; palpation; range-of-motion; strength testing; and other special tests as part of your shoulder diagnosis toolkit.
Rotator Cuff Tears: Improving Results in Overhead Athletes
In this presentation, learn the latest from the world of baseball on the frequency, severity, and treatment of rotator cuff tears. We’ll cover treatment possibilities for partial and full-thickness tears, including return-to-play statistics.
Superior Labral-Biceps Complex: Rare Indications for SLAP Repair
Learn about the etiology of SLAP tears, including biomechanical events in overhead athletes. This presentation will cover the various grades of SLAP tears, the role of MRI imaging, and detailed guidance on which tears are best suited for surgical intervention.
26 yo RHD Outfielder Right Shoulder Pain
In this case review, learn about a Minor League baseball (AAA) outfielder with right dominant shoulder pain with throwing. A previous MRI showed Type 2 superior labral lesion rehabilitated with return-to-play. But now the shoulder pain has worsened. What to do? Follow along to find out.
New Concepts in Rotator Cuff Tendon Healing
Do biological treatments have a role to play in rotator cuff tendon healing? When do rotator cuff repairs fail? And which patients are indicated for autologous biologic augmentation for arthroscopic rotator cuff repair? Find the answers to all these questions and more.
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.
