· Guidance from world-renowned faculty in the lab and during case-based discussion
What past participants have said about the course:
· “The history/exam talk was excellent. I feel better equipped to examine patients. The imaging talk was also good. Discussion on acetabular version was helpful as this issue comes up frequently in my practice.”
· “Great course. Helped with understanding of when certain techniques should be used.”
· “[Faculty were an] outstanding group. Very interactive and available. Extremely knowledgeable. Strived to be evidence-based.”
· “I think the course was very good for both the podium presentations and cadaveric sessions and overall helped me a great deal. It was definitely worth coming for the course.”
Who should take this course?
Arthroscopic and open hip preservation surgeons familiar with concepts and techniques of treating classic acetabular dysplasia and cam impingement. In addition, surgeons that may not treat these conditions themselves, but are interested in making the correct diagnosis.
At the conclusion of this course, learners should be able to:
· Practice open or arthroscopic hip preservation techniques in a cadaveric setting
· Define controversies regarding arthroscopic and open procedures for borderline hip conditions
· Review the variations in acetabular-sided morphologies and implications for surgical management approaches
· Compare and contrast the variations in femoral-sided morphologies and implications for surgical management approaches
· Identify various patterns of extra-articular hip impingement and appropriate surgical management options
