Advanced Course in Total Hip & Total Knee Replacement

DAY: FRIDAY 6 JUNE

After a very successful debut of this full-day session on „Advances in Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement“ in Istanbul, it will be held again in London.

The session will feature the latest approaches to reconstruction of the hip and knee in adults. A panel of recognised European experts with a great breadth and depth of experience in total hip and knee replacement has been appointed. The members of the panel will pass on their knowledge of a total of 24 key issues in day-to-day practice in both primary and revision surgery. The aim of the course is to provide younger joint replacement specialists and more experienced senior consultants alike with an update on the latest in techniques and treatments.

Topics to be covered in the course are:

  • Selection of fixation type
  • Selection of bearings
  • Benefits and drawbacks of different approaches to the joint
  • Treatment of deformities when inserting implants
  • Diagnostics and treatment of deep infections
  • Treatment of periprosthetic fractures
  • Removal of well-fixed implants
  • Presentation of complicated primary and revision cases
