Goal of the course
aims to maximize patient outcomes following a periprosthetic fracture by
improving the practicing surgeon's ability to recognize, classify, plan, and
perform internal fixation and revision procedures for total joint arthroplasty
around the hip and knee prostheses.
Senior, experienced (more than 5 years) consultant/practicing surgeons:
- General orthopaedic surgeons
- Fracture specialists
- Arthroplasty specialists
- Surgeons experienced with both trauma and arthroplasty
The course is delivered using a combination of small group discussions, cases, exercises with anatomical specimens or other simulation materials (when appropriate), and summary lectures. All activities are moderated by expert faculty in a highly interactive learning environment. Participants are encouraged to discuss the cases and content in an open manner and to share their own experiences.
