Child and Young Adult Hip Preservation | Boston Children's Hospital

I am an Orthopaedic Surgeon from Brazil, where I attended Medical School and Orthopaedic Surgery residency. Between 2003/04, I spent 18 months in the United States for Pediatric Orthopaedics Fellowship and traveling fellowship. I was in practice in Brazil until 2008 when a previous fellowship director made an offer for me to come to join his practice. However, further training in the US was mandatory. I returned to the US and attended a Pediatric Orthopaedic Fellowship at the University of Utah, a Musculoskeletal Oncology Fellowship at the Mayo Clinic and Hip Preservation Surgery at Boston Children's Hospital.

I then joined the University of Colorado/Children's Hospital, Colorado, where I spent four years. I dedicated my time for clinical activity and research. I was the Director of the Child and Adult Hip Preservation Program at Children's Hospital, which required about 10-15% of administrative time. I also served as the Children's Hospital Orthopaedic Director of Education, and I worked very closely with the Orthopedic Residency Director. In 2015 I was recruited by the Boston Children's Hospital Orthopaedic Department to work as a pediatric hip surgeon and to help continue the development of their hip program.

I have been with the Department of Orthopaedics and Hip Program at Boston Children's Hospital for four years. I run an outpatient clinic twice or three times per week at the Children's Hospital and an operating room twice or three times a week. I also have expanded my role in the orthopedic community at Longwood by joining the orthopedic department at the Beth Israel Medical Center and the Brigham and Women's Hospital, where I perform hip surgery in patients older than 35 years of age.

My busy clinical practice has not deviated my attention to my clinical research endeavors. I have dedicated time to research, including a half or a full day per week. When I moved to Boston in 2015, I had about 36 peer-reviewed publications. Since then, I have published twice as much in a short period of 4 years. Not only I have published more, but the quality of the research has also improved with manuscripts published in prestigious journals, including the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, the American Journal of Sports Medicine, and the Journal of Orthopedic Research. This year, we compiled enough preliminary evidence to support the submission of a Research Project Grant (R01) to the NIH. We are proposing a longitudinal investigation on the role of obesity, high impact sports in the development of SCFE and CAM FAI morphology.

Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at McGill University and a staff neonatologist at McGill University Health Center

Dr. Sant'Anna is an Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at McGill University and a staff neonatologist at McGill University Health Center. He received his MD from Brazil and completed his clinical and research training at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec. Dr. Sant'Anna obtained his PhD in Physiology in 2002 in a combined program between IFF/Fiocruz, Brazil and Physiology at McGill University. After that, he worked as an Associated Professor at McMaster University from 2005 to 2009 when he finally returned to McGill to purse a clinical researcher career.

Dr. Sant'Anna's research interests are in neonatal physiology (respiratory and thermoregulation) and invasive & non-invasive ventilation. He is actually investigating the role of heart rate and respiratory variability in the prediction of extubation failure in extreme preterm infants and differences in cardiorespiratory patterns immediately after extubation while babies are on nasal CPAP, non-invasive ventilation or high flow nasal cannula therapy. Dr Sant'Anna is also involved in research with infants that suffered from hypoxic-ischemic events and have evidence of encephalopathy. His major interests in this field are infants with mild HIE, measurements of blood flow using Doppler ultrasonography and analysis of biological signals. Dr Sant'Anna is a member of the SPR and he is funded by the CIHR and the Research Institute at the Montreal Children's Hospital. He has also developed several research collaborations at national and international levels.

My research has focused on the following areas:

Measurement of total and regional oxygen delivery in the perioperative period in the neonate with complex congenital heart disease. Our work has included the use of novel monitoring techniques such as continuous venous oximetry and near infrared spectroscopy.

Development of home monitoring strategies to improve interstage survival among patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome undergoing the Norwood procedure.

Anticoagulation and procoagulants in pediatric cardiac surgical patients with a special focus on neonates and patients requiring extracorporeal circulatory support.

Currently, she is an Associate Professor at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular & Cellular Biology at Georgetown University, Washington DC. Dr. Kitlinska's research focuses on the role of neuropetide Y (NPY) in the development, growth and progression of pediatric tumors - neuroblastoma and Ewing sarcoma. Although high expression of NPY and its receptors in these tumors has been known for years, the peptide was considered merely as a marker of their neuronal origin. Dr. Kitlinska's group has pioneered the research on functional role of NPY in neuroendocrine tumors. We have discovered that NPY is a crucial proliferative and angiogenic factor for neuroblastoma, while in Ewing sarcoma these growth-promoting functions are activated by tumor microenvironment. Currently, her research focuses on role of NPY in metastasis and its interactions with tumor microenvironment. Since physiologically NPY is a stress hormone, Dr. Kitlinska is also interested in the effect of stress, both direct and transgenerational, on cancer development and progression.

I am a Member in the Department of Oncology at St. Jude Children?s Research Hospital, professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Tennessee, Memphis, and professor and supervisor at the PhD Program in Pediatrics, Faculdades Pequeno Príncipe, Curitiba, Brazil. I have served as the Director of the St. Jude International Outreach Program (1997 through 2013) and Director of the Leukemia/Lymphoma Division (2006 through 2013). I also created the educational website denominated Cure4Kids. For the past 31 years, my goals have been to improve the survival of children with malignancies by engaging in clinical research adapting therapy according to disease genotypes. With collaborators in Brazil and Egypt, we have found that specific subsets of acute lymphoblastic leukemia can be identified by simple flow cytometric assays and cured with relatively mild chemotherapy regimens. In collaboration with Brazilian and international investigators, new options for the genetic diagnosis and treatment of acute promyelocytic have been elaborated. A cluster of adrenocortical tumor (ACT) in southern Brazil led us to the discovery of a new inherited genetic alteration (R337H TP53 mutation). Current research efforts include the International Registry for ACT, genome-wide studies to understand phenotype/genotype correlates with this and other TP53 mutations, and new approaches for the treatment of acute pediatric myeloid leukemia. The H-index is 59.
