About This Course
Are you comfortable with repair of simple fractures? Are you looking to move to the next level and take on more challenging fracture repair? If so, this is the course for you. This course will teach techniques used to repair more difficult comminuted fractures of the humerus, radius, femur and tibia. Fractures of the metaphysis and diaphysis will be addressed. This course will also teach the principles of articular fracture repair. Fractures involving the joint surface require anatomic reduction and rigid stabilization to reduce the chance of osteoarthritis and produce a positive outcome. Participants will learn techniques used to repair humeral condylar fractures and femoral head fractures. This course will familiarize participants with advanced fracture repair techniques through lecture and clinical case presentations. Following lecture and case review, participants will repair fractures on plastic bone models and cadavers. Postoperative radiographs will be taken to evaluate the participants’ repair technique.
Coffee and snacks are provided throughout the day.
Lunch provided on full-day courses.
Dinners to go – We’ve found that at the end of a long course day participants are looking forward to returning to their hotel to relax. We realize that our preferred lodging partner doesn’t have a restaurant on site or located close to the hotel. To help make things easier for you we will provide a hot meal, at the end of each full course day, with to go containers so you can bring it back to the hotel with you. On the last day of the course we will provide something a little easier to transport for those heading to the airport. This will not apply to those courses that end midafternoon – only those that end at noon or 5:00PM.
