Pre-Course Description ►

This pre-course is targeted to the orthopaedic surgeon whose practice centers on the young and the aging sports knee. It will present the latest knowledge and surgical techniques relevant to the management of knee pathology, focusing on surgical knowledge and technique. The course will be suitable for the subspecialist knee surgeon as well as the general orthopaedic surgeon desiring an update on controversies and techniques within the athletic and the aging knee.

The half-day course will consist of a series of expert and evidence based lectures combined with case examples querying the experts on difficult problems with diverse and at times controversial solutions. Key cadaveric surgical demonstrations are embedded within each topic. An interactive audience response system has enhanced audience participation and has augmented audience education. Following this course, the participant will be well-versed in the approach to the injured athletic knee, with improved knowledge in its management.
