Orthopaedic Oncology Review Course

Overview

This one-day, intensive review course is designed for the busy professional intent on mastering the essentials of orthopaedic oncology. Concise yet comprehensive instruction will be provided in the mutlidsiciplinary evaluation and management of the musculoskeletal oncology patient. Topics include radiology, pathology, and orthopaedic surgical techniques. Question-and-answers sessions will prepare the attendee for in-training, board, and re-certification examinations.

TARGET AUDIENCE

Orthopaedic residents, fellows, and attending surgeons; Pathologists; Radiologists; General surgical oncologists; Nurses and allied health professionals involved in the care of orthopaedic oncology patients.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

To provide a highly organized, efficient, thorough conference to review key orthopaedic oncology principles in order to improve competency in patient care. After course completion, attendees will be prepared to:

• Understand and be able to use the tools of radiologic and pathologic studies in the diagnosis and staging of musculoskeletal tumors and tumor-like conditions. Pertinent, "need-to-know" topics will range from basic science advances to essentials of microscopic histology.

• Employ the strategy of using multiple disciplines in the care of the musculoskeletal oncology patient. State-of-the-art orthopaedic surgical techniques involved in the care of the limb salvage and amputee patient will be covered.

• Face current practice gaps in orthopaedic oncologic patient care, including: careful diagnostic work-up; proper approach to biopsy issues; completion of staging evaluation; appropriate treatment; avoidance and management of complications; and provision of expert aftercare.

• Succeed in professional examinations and the care of the orthopaedic oncology patient.
