Area of Focus: Hip, Knee & Lower Extremity
Evaluate your knowledge of primary and revision total hip and total knee replacement. Improve your skills in preventing and managing infection, pain, thromboembolism, and osteolysis. Learn to identify factors contributing to wear of hip and knee-bearing surfaces. Developed in partnership with American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, The Hip Society, and The Knee Society.
As a result of completing the 2016 Adult Reconstructive Surgery of the Hip and Knee Self-Assessment Examination, I am able to:
• formulate a diagnosis and treatment plan for the failed total knee arthroplasty.
• describe the diagnosis and treatment of hip dysplasia.
• apply the AAOS guidelines for prevention and management of thromboembolic complications after total hip and total knee arthroplasty.
• identify important factors in the evaluation of periprosthetic femur fractures.
• discuss with my patients the available treatment options for the infected total hip or knee arthroplasty.
• determine the appropriate patient management procedures for femoroacetabular impingement.
• determine treatment recommendations for metal reactions in the setting of total hip arthroplasty.
