A welcome respite after a long day of travel – the 2023 AANA Traveling Fellows arrived in Mexico City and were graciously welcomed by their host and former Traveling Fellow Diego Perez-Salazar Marina, M.D. (far right) into his home.

“Chef” Diego Perez Salazar Marina, M.D. presents his masterpiece!

The 2023 AANA Traveling Fellows, along with their Godfather, enjoyed a delicious meal featuring a cornucopia of traditional Mexican foods and lively discussion with Diego Perez-Salazar Marina, M.D., Pedro Iturbide Siles, M.D., Javier Martin Becerra, M.D. and their families and Fellows. Discussions ranged from arthroscopic brachial plexus dissection to anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, shoulder arthroplasty, our canine friends and the Mandalorian. This is the way!

The 2023 AANA Traveling Fellows hosts from Ortomove went above and beyond, gifting each Traveling Fellow a personalized fleece. Godfather Nicholas Sgaglione, M.D., the group unanimously decided, is not only the “Godfather” for the trip but also a “Good Father” and “Good Fella.”
