The 2023 AANA Traveling Fellows and Godfather Nicholas Sgaglione, M.D. pause for a moment before a packed morning of surgery observation with hosts from Ortomove at ABC Medical Center in Mexico City. “Nothing But Fun” included ACL reconstructions, complex meniscus repair, biceps tenodesis, rotator cuff repair and lively discussions about decision-making in meniscus surgery, postoperative rehabilitation protocols, graft choice for ACL reconstructions, choice of biceps tenodesis location, technique, fixation and more.

After a late lunch, the 2023 AANA Traveling Fellows switched gears from the operating room to sharing talks with their hosts. Terrific talks followed by stimulating discussion. Albert Gee, M.D., FAANA (pictured) prepares to teach us about lateral extra-articular tenodesis with ACL reconstruction.

After a comprehensive, in-depth series of knee and shoulder talks, case presentations from hosts and stimulating discussion, the 2023 AANA Traveling Fellows share a moment on the auditorium stage before adjourning for the evening. A memorable day of surgery and academics. The Traveling Fellows are truly grateful for the experience the Ortomove/ABC Medical Center hosts put together.
