Course #2403335

Welcome to the AAOS course on Orthopaedic Infections. This two-day course is designed for the practicing orthopaedic surgeon to get an update on the latest techniques to prevent, diagnose and treat surgical site infections.

The course is structured into several focused modules, beginning with an introduction to musculoskeletal infections, discussing current challenges with diagnosis, prevention, and treatment. This is followed by an exploration of the latest techniques for prevention of such infections, with case-based sessions.  Additional modules will focus on implant-related infections, through debate and discussion surrounding evaluation and management of fracture-related and prosthetic joint infections. This course will also address other common conditions such as diabetic foot infections, management strategies for native septic arthritis, as well as a dedicated session on microbiology and antibiotic management. Ancillary topics such as past, present, and future directions of orthopedic imaging as well as both infection mimics and infections in the immunocompromised host will be presented. Finally, the course will explore upcoming advancements with short presentations on innovative topics, including the use of bacteriophage and SPY, amongst others. By the completion of this course, you will improve your ability to manage complexities and challenges linked with musculoskeletal infections. This course provides an immersive, interdisciplinary learning experience aimed at fostering improved patient-centered care.
