Goal of the course

This AOTrauma Masters Course—Hip Fractures addresses current concepts and state-of-the-art treatment options for proximal femur fractures, while respecting the clinical know how that has been developed over decades. The curriculum will address issues critical to the successful surgical management of these challenging injuries.
