Pathologic changes to the hip are common, are you comfortable with the surgical approaches and how to execute various surgical procedures? Having a firm understanding of how to treat some of the most common disorders and injuries of the hip can add a niche to your practice. Our expert surgeons will come to your hospital and teach you how to quickly diagnose hip problems using the signalment, orthopedic examination, and radiographic findings in this 1-day course.
This interactive course will include both lectures and laboratories where participants will learn about hip dysplasia and early management with a juvenile pelvic symphysiodesis (JPS). Conditions necessitating a femoral head and neck ostectomy (FHO) will be covered as well as a hands-on based approach to execution of the FHO. Hip luxations and reduction/toggle techniques will be covered. Participants will have the ability to perform a JPS, FHO, and toggle procedure on cadavers with attention on the craniolateral approach to the hip to minimize soft tissue trauma. Post-operative radiographs will be taken to assess the appropriateness of the FHO and toggle repair.
