Dr. Li’s resident wins the New England Shoulder & Elbow Society (NESES) Annual Meeting Arciero-Warner Resident / Fellow Research Award
Dr. Robert Parisien presented the findings of the risks of nerve injuries during reverse or anatomical shoulder arthroplasty: An inter-operative nerve monitoring study. This study has been presented at multiple national meetings and currently is published in the Journal of Shoulder and Elbow Surgery.
Mitek Global Connect 2013
Dr Li has been invited by Mitek Sports Medicine to present his surgical case and techniques on “Arthroscopic Bony Bankart Repair using a Double Row Suture Bridge Technique” to over 30 top Chinese surgeons in Beijing and Shanghai via the first Mitek Global Connect event. Location for the event include Raynham (MA), Beijing Hospital 301 (Military Hospital), Beijing Hospital #3 (Beijing University), and Shanghai Huashan Hospital (Fudan University).
Obesity May Limit Overall Function Two Years after Shoulder Replacement Surgery
Obesity does not significantly impact short-term complications, outcomes. Dr. Li has been featured in over 350 online newspapers and newslinks including Yahoo.com, Reuters, Boston Globe, ABC news, CBS News, AAOS, etc. for his research on the functional outcome after total shoulder replacement surgery and obesity. Dr. Li says, “Our study found that with short-term follow-up, obesity does not have a detrimental effect on functional outcomes and complication rates in patients after TSA,” said orthopaedic surgeon and lead study author Xinning Li, MD, Assistant Professor at the Boston University School of Medicine and Boston Medical Center.
Dr. Li presented his research on Reverse Shoulder Replacement and Notching at the 2013 Eastern Orthopaedics Association Meeting
Dr. Li presented his research on the podium of the Eastern Orthopaedics Association (EOA) meeting in Miami, Florida. His project is titled “Does the use of an inferiorly offset glenosphere in reverse shoulder arthroplasty reduce scapular notching? A radiographic and functional outcome analysis”.
Dr. Li to Teach At the Tornier Course on the “Clinical Concepts in Shoulder & Elbow Arthroplasty
Dr. Li was invited to teach a shoulder and elbow cadaver course at the Sports Medicine North Facility in Peabody, MA. This course is designed to teach other orthopaedic surgeons the skills and technical pearls to do a total shoulder and elbow replacement.

Dr. Li presents his research projects at the international Combined Orthopaedic Research Society Meeting in Venice, Italy
Dr. Li presented several posters at the CORS meeting including topics from an in depth analysis of the epidemiology and complications after total ankle and elbow replacements from a national in-patient database. In addition, Dr. Li presented recent clinical and radiographic data on the reverse shoulder arthroplasty and inferior scapula notching using an eccentric glenosphere. Other projects included the evaluation of the glenoid density with microCT imaging and the association of hip range of motion and injury in professional baseball players.
Dr. Li selected as the Moderator of the Clinical Outcomes Session at the international Combined Orthopaedic Research Society Meeting
Dr. Li was selected by the program committee of the CORS meeting to moderate the clinical outcomes session on October 16th, 2013. He discussed the projects and presentations with the podium speaker and the audience. http://www.cors2013.org/
Dr. Li receives the 2012 Eastern Orthopaedic Association Resident Research Award and Travel Grant for his Research Project
Functional outcome after total shoulder arthroplasty in the obese patient population. A prospective study with greater than 2 years of follow up. Dr. Li presented this study on the podium at the Eastern Orthopaedics Association meeting in Bolton Landing, NY. Evaluating the effects of obesity on patients after total shoulder replacement, Dr. Li found that obesity did not have a detrimental effect on the improvement of short-term shoulder function.
AAOS/OREF/ORS Clinician Scholar Development Program (CSDP)
Dr. Li was chosen by the AAOS/OREF/ORS to participate in the prestigious 2011 Clinician Scholar Development Program in Rosemont, IL. He was one of the top ten applicants selected for this conference out of hundreds of applicants (Orthopaedic Surgeons) from across the United States. The mission of the CSDP is to “develop a cadre of orthopaedic clinician scientists who will lead the research efforts to find new methodologies to treat and cure orthopaedic related illnesses and injuries. The AAOS/OREF/ORS CSDP is a first step in the career path for clinician scientists. This program offers the orthopaedic profession a new source of clinician scientists engaged in research that advances orthopaedic surgery and musculoskeletal medicine.
Dr. Li receives the 2011 Eastern Orthopaedic Association Resident Research Award and Travel Grant for his Research Project
Evaluation of sterilization technique following contamination of Anterior Cruciate Ligament hamstring autografts. Dr. Li presented this study on the podium of the EOA meeting in Williamsburg, VA. Dr. Li and his colleagues evaluated several sterilization methods following contamination of hamstring autografts during ACL reconstruction and found that using either a 4% chlorhexidine or bacitracin solution resulted in a significant decrease in the positive bacterial cultures.
