Orthopaedic Experts to Discuss Advances in Care

Cedars-Sinai Physicians and Scientists Available to Comment on Health Equity, Early-Onset Scoliosis, Geriatric Fractures, Sports Medicine and More at Major Orthopaedic Conference

Cedars-Sinai orthopaedic experts will present their latest advances in treatments and research at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) in Chicago March 22-26, sharing innovations to improve the quality of patient care and diversify the ranks of surgeons.

Abstracts from Cedars-Sinai orthopaedic surgeons and researchers will address chronic opioid use following geriatric hip fracture surgery; injectables in the management of osteoarthritis of the knee; same-day discharge after total hip and knee arthroplasty; and the continued scarcity of female representation in orthopaedics.

"We're looking forward to participating and reuniting with peers at AAOS 2022," said Mark Vrahas, MD, chair of Cedars-Sinai Orthopaedics. "The five-day and in-person gathering is such a vital opportunity for those vested in advancing musculoskeletal care to connect and innovate together."
