The Eighth Annual Hip and Knee Course 
Date: August 15–16, 2014
Location: Four Seasons Hotel, Baltimore, Maryland

This conference will bring together the world leaders in hip and knee joint preservation and reconstruction. The course format will consist of fast-paced, lively discussions, didactic presentations, and surgical demonstrations. The goal is to identify, outline, and discuss new technology for the treatment of hip and knee disorders in adult patients.

Topics discussed will include new surgical approaches, techniques, prostheses, and computer-assisted surgery/robotics. General topics will include infection, deep vein thrombosis, pain management, rehabilitation, and biologicals. The latest technology and the economics of total knee and hip arthroplasty will be addressed. The new surgical approaches to the hip that will be taught will include the various ways to perform an anterior approach. Pathomechanics, patient selection, and treatment options for femoroacetabular impingement will be discussed. A comprehensive range of standard and resurfacing hip arthroplasty options will be presented, with a focus on the current principles of patient selection, implant selection, and surgical techniques, as well as avoiding complications. Comparisons will be made between current generation metal- on-polyethylene and alternate bearing surfaces. Pertinent basic science issues will be presented and discussed, which will include tribology, retrieval analyses, pathology, wear debris exposure, and related concerns. Dual mobility hip designs, short stems for total hip arthroplasty, and the evolution of bearing surfaces will also be addressed.

Joint preserving topics such new biologics and knee re-alignment—both traditional and newer schemes. Biological cell regulation therapy, shape matching, cross-linked polyethylenes, and minimally invasive surgery will be tackled. Presentations will include new implant choices for total knee arthroplasty utilizing innovative and less invasive technologies such as robotics and navigation.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify new and currently available technology to treat adult hip and knee disorders
  • Discuss the current state of knowledge in joint preservation and reconstruction
  • Understand current and emerging surgical and nonsurgical approaches for the treatment of arthritis in the hip and in the knee
  • Evaluate therapies and new approaches for relieving pain and improving function
  • See the future directions of joint preservation
