Seventh Annual Joint Course
Modern Techniques in Hip and Knee Reconstruction and Preservation
Friday, August 23, & Saturday, August 24, 2013 

This conference will bring together the world leaders in hip and knee joint preservation and reconstruction for a combination of didactic presentations, focused discussions, and surgical demonstrations. The goal is to identify, outline, and discuss the current state of knowledge in the clinical and basic sciences as they pertain to the diagnosis and 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. Cost analysis 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. The 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. Future directions, such as dual mobility hip designs, short stems for total hip arthroplasty, and the evolution of bearing surfaces will also be addressed.

Joint preserving topics will be discussed such as 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. 

The following pre-course will also be offered:
