Learn and practice the latest techniques in complex pelvic and acetabular fractures!
Gain a better understanding of the relevant anatomy and surgical challenges during this dynamic hands-on skills course. The majority of your time is spent practicing surgical procedures on cadaveric specimens in the hands-on skills lab, exploring the appropriate usage and placement of clamps for reduction, and appropriate fixation devices for each specific fracture type.

Learn the best strategies for preventing potential complications and participate in debates between expert surgeons on case controversies involving prevalent and complex pelvic and acetabular injury patterns. Compelling academic lectures and surgical demonstrations round out your course experience.

Bring your PA for a unique opportunity to work together and strengthen your performance as a team!
PAs can attend lectures, view surgical demonstrations, and observe in the lab. Please note: PAs must register with an orthopaedic surgeon by calling AAOS Customer Service at 1-800-626-6726 and providing the name of the surgeon that is registered for the course.

  • Evaluate patients with pelvic and acetabular fractures and formulate a surgical plan
  • Correlate the radiology and anatomy of the pelvis and acetabulum in formulating a treatment plan
  • Determine the indications for operative and nonoperative management
  • Analyze the fracture patterns of the pelvis and acetabulum and the surgical approaches appropriate for the formal osteosynthesis of each anatomical structure
  • Compare and contrast techniques of direct and indirect reduction; formal and percutaneous fixation; practice techniques in lab
  • Treat complications of fractures of the pelvis and acetabulum


Special Highlights:


Strategies for preventing complications, including:
  • Blood loss
  • Malreduction/malunion
