The course is open to orthopaedic surgeons, residents, nurses, and members of the orthopaedic and allied health industries.
• Hemi and total shoulder arthroplasty use has dramatically increased and is attributed to improvements in instrumentation, design modularity, and surgical technique.
• Both hip and knee reconstruction have evolved into mature sciences and are seen to be dependent on a triad of design, patient factors, and technical proficiency to achieve clinical longevity.
• This meeting will focus on both primary and revision outcomes, surgical approaches, new materials, and design as well as address problems of fixation, bone deficiency, instability, trauma, and infection for hip, knee, and shoulder replacement.
• An assemblage of contemporary thought leaders will probe the boundaries of these problems and offer solutions for joint pathologies where arthroplasty is indicated.
• Plenary commentary, didactic clinical reports, technique videos, debate, case challenges, and live surgery define the formats of presentation, which provide an optimal learning opportunity for orthopaedic surgeons and other allied professionals involved in joint reconstruction.
