Dr. Stetson recently traveled to Timișoara, Romania to participate in the Comprehensive Shoulder Course hosted by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS). As one of the two American faculty members at the conference, Dr. Stetson is leading the way in teaching Romanian surgeons current techniques used in the treatment of shoulder trauma, instability and rotator cuff disease.
Dr. Stetson has been heavily involved in international orthopedic educational endeavors throughout his career. He has served as the Chairman of the International Committee of AAOS for the past four years. Prior to that, he served on the committee for three years. In these roles he has organized and participated in educational trips to Romania, Cuba, and Argentina, to name just a few. Although Dr. Stetson will be stepping down as Chairman this year, he plans to continue pursuing his passion for international service and education.
