Residents - Expand your surgical skills for hip and knee arthroplasty!
Build your surgical skills leading to proficiency at hip and knee arthroplasty in this interactive skills course designed exclusively for orthopaedic residents! Spend the majority of your time practicing bone cuts, correct ligament balancing for TKA, determining correct implant sizing and restoring biomechanics in THA, and more.
Course highlights include:
- Preoperative planning and templating for hip and knee arthroplasty
- The rationale behind, and the surgical skills needed to:
- Monitor and reproduce leg lengths in THA
- Monitor and improve hip stability during THA
- Release soft-tissues to obtain appropriate limb and implant alignment during TKA
- Maximize motion following TKA
- Discussions on practice management, as well as perioperative protocols and diagnosis and treatment of peri-prosthetic infection
Work on anatomical specimens under the guidance of expert faculty. Panel discussions and faculty-led small group interactions round out your lab experience.
At the conclusion of this course, learners should be able to:
Identify the surgical anatomy as it relates to arthroplasty of the hip and knee
Combine clinical and radiographic information in pre-operative templating of hip and knee Arthroplasty
Practice exposure of the hip and knee with a variety of approaches
Formulate strategies for intraoperative decision-making for releasing contractures, maximizing motion and retaining stability of the Arthroplasty
Manage and avoid postoperative complications following arthroplasty
Understand the different component design and rationale for use with cementless and cemented Arthroplasty
