Fundamentals of Hip and Knee Arthroplasty for Orthopaedic Residents

Two Dates/Two Locations!

Residents! Build your surgical skills for TKA and THA with guidance from expert faculty

Experience 2.5 content-packed days, rotating between dynamic classroom sessions and hands-on cadaver labs, building your foundation of numerous hip and knee arthroplasty procedures.

Most of your time is in the lab practicing bone cuts, ligament balancing, limb and implant alignment, and more – working closely with course faculty in a personalized learning environment.

Engaging lectures, panels, and small-group case discussions round out your experience, covering important topics including:

  • Preoperative planning and templating
  • Practice management topics
  • Perioperative protocols
  • Diagnosis and treatment of peri-prosthetic infection

"I absolutely loved this course. It was resident-centered throughout, focusing on education through case examples, presented in an informal and laidback setting." - 2019 Course Participant
