Course director: Donald A. Wiss, MD
Why You Should Attend
Orthopedic trauma involves serious injuries to bones and joints, including complex fractures and dislocations that can result in complications. These potentially limb-threatening or life-altering injuries are commonly the result of high-energy trauma from car accidents, falls, sporting activities and industrial accidents, and require critical decision-making strategies for immediate care and surgical interventions.
With more patients with complex injuries remaining at the admitting hospital, the responsibility for care rests with surgeons practicing at nontrauma hospitals. This has increased the need for surgeons who take emergency calls to be current with contemporary methods of fracture management.
This conference will present the latest techniques and algorithms in the care of patients with complex upper and lower extremity injuries, hip and femur fractures, and tibia, knee and ankle injuries for the benefit of orthopedic surgeons, emergency room physicians and other clinicians and healthcare professionals.
Expert faculty will explore improving outcomes for displaced proximal humeral fractures, discuss the indications for total hip replacement, provide reduction techniques and tricks for subtrochanteric femur fractures and intramedullary nailing of proximal and distal tibia fractures and cover controversial topics in current trauma care using a combination of didactic lectures, case studies, panel discussions and audience engagement.
Who Should Attend
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of orthopedic surgeons, emergency room physicians, physician assistants, residents, fellows, nurse practitioners and registered nurses on the latest techniques and algorithms for the care of patients with complex musculoskeletal problems.
