Shoulder Advisory team

Outline of study: a 15-year-old patient presented with chronic groin and leg pain. The treating surgeon diagnosed the young man with slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) and undertook a percutaneous pinning procedure (placing an implant into the hip), halting the surgery due to difficulty with visualization of the leg bone structure and interpretation. The surgeon later returned the patient to the operating room (OR) for a second attempt which was also unsuccessful. These two failed surgical attempts involved significant doses of anesthetic and radiation.
