The latest information on indications, outcomes, and techniques for performing shoulder arthroplasty
This intensive, hands-on course provides current approaches to reverse total shoulder and open instability procedures including open Bankart repairs and the Latarjet procedure. Spend the majority of the course in the cadaver lab honing your surgical skills under the guidance of experienced leaders in the field. Learn how and when to use a reverse shoulder arthroplasty to treat a variety of shoulder pathologies, and open Bankart and Latarjet procedures in patients with shoulder instability in order to improve your decision-making in determining the best treatment method for your patients.

What past participants have said about the course:
  • “The course was excellent and helped me clarify which implants for RSA are best suited to my needs. I will now be able to incorporate RSA, especially with fracture care, with better confidence in surgical techniques and indications.”
  • “Great course. I attended mostly for the instability (Latarjet, open Barkart) portion, but also learned a ton regarding RSA and will take that back to my practice as well. Overall very happy with educational experience and format.”
  • “Fantastic faculty with a wide breadth of knowledge and experience.”
  • “I found the faculty engaging and helpful. They were also quite engaged in teaching and discussing shoulder surgeries beyond the scope of the course.”
  • “I felt that overall the course was excellent! The speakers had a great knowledge of the subject and they were good at not only teaching, but presenting controversies and complications.”
