Bleacher Report names Dr. Romeo one of 10 Super Surgeons

Bleacher ReportBleacher Report recently published an article entitled “Meet the 10 Super Surgeons Tasked with Putting MLB’s Broken Arms Back Together”.

The article includes Dr. Romeo and some entertaining comments, including, “Anthony Romeo should be a fictional character. Down to his name, his story sounds more like a Grey’s Anatomy character than a respected surgeon. He’s brash, experimental and willing to go out on limbs that even other surgeons shy away from. Knee implants? Sure. Aggressive new shoulder techniques? Why not?”

US News & World Report names Rush University Medical Center one of top orthopedic hospitals in US

GR_PR_best_hospitals_rankings_110325950_wmUS News & World Report has named Rush University Medical Center one of the top orthopedic hospitals in the United States. Rush’s US News score is 65.8.

The data for the report are mostly derived from information provided by the American Hospital Association using a metric U.S. News & World Report called an “index of hospital quality,” based on structure, process, outcomes and patient safety. Structural measures include the amount and types of technology provided, the availability of nursing staff, and other patient services. The process of care measures the ways care is delivered, from diagnosis to treatment, prevention and patient education. Outcomes are based on risk-adjusted overall survival. Because mortality is a key factor in the complex weighting system employed by U.S. News & World Report, ophthalmology, psychiatry, rehabilitation and rheumatology are judged using a reputation metric.

To be eligible for inclusion in the report, a hospital must be a member in the council of teaching hospitals, be affiliated with a medical school, or have at least 200 beds and associated staff or at least 100 beds and at least four “key technologies” such as advanced imaging devices, a cardiac ICU and robotic surgery. Other criteria include statistics related to volume and discharge.

Dr. Romeo in Orthopedics Today: Orthopedic surgeons should address challenges of youth sports from a team approach

Orthopedics TodayDr. Romeo’s latest commentary for Orthopedics Today has been published. Entitled, “Orthopedic surgeons should address challenges of youth sports from a team approach”, the article discusses the benefits of youth sports and the responsibilities of those involved in the care of young athletes.

Dr. Romeo writes, “Orthopedic surgeons need to address the most significant challenges from a team approach. Orthopedic surgeons know the benefits of sport, not only as a child or young adult, but also as part of a life-long commitment to better health and a greater sense of responsibility for our own well-being. We need to find the time and take the opportunities to lead the team in the prevention of sports-related injuries. The benefits of sport can be taken away from a child with one serious injury — an injury that may be prevented with the current knowledge available.”
