Cedars-Sinai Orthopaedic Trauma experts will present their latest advances in treatments and research at the annual meeting of the Orthopaedic Trauma Association (OTA) in Florida Oct. 12-15. 

Sharing innovations to improve the quality of patient care and introduce paths forward to reducing racial health disparities in orthopaedic trauma surgery, Cedars-Sinai orthopaedic trauma presenters, moderators and authors will be available for in-person and virtual interviews on a variety of clinical and research topics.
