AOTrauma Seminar - Tips and Tricks for Orthopaedic Surgeons

October 15, 2020 to October 17, 2020
JW Marriot Marco Island Beach Resort, Marco Island, Florida 34145, United States
Musculoskeletal disorders and diseases are the leading cause of disability in the United States and account for more than one-half of all chronic conditions in people over 50 years of age. Effective and early treatment of musculoskeletal disorders can mitigate the long-term impact of musculoskeletal disease and help patients return earlier to full and active lives.

The annual AOTrauma North America Tips & Tricks for Orthopedic Surgeons course employs extensive use of cases and small-group discussions and a limited number of formal lectures to create a great interactive learning environment. Over the full 4 ½ days, course participants will have ample opportunities to review and discuss clinical cases and discover how to better think through clinical problems and challenges.

Upon completion, participants should be able to:

-Explain recent technological advances in the treatment of difficult fractures
-Describe current techniques for improved wound and fracture healing, as well as fracture reduction and fixation options
-Develop a comprehensive treatment plan for patients with commonly encountered complex fractures
-Describe current options for the treatment of complex periarticular fractures and dislocations
-Identify contemporary issues in the management of complex shoulder, elbow and wrist trauma

AOTrauma Course - Basic Principles of Fracture Management

October 22, 2020 to October 25, 2020
Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront, Jacksonville, Florida 32202, United States
This Basic Principles of Fracture Management course is designed to provide the participant with a fundamental knowledge of the operative treatment of fractures according to the AO principles.

The four guiding AO principles of fracture fixation are:

-Anatomic reduction of the fracture fragments, particularly in joint fractures;
-Stable fixation to ensure proper healing of the fracture while allowing surrounding tissue to move and strengthen;
-Atraumatic surgical techniques to preserve the blood supply to the bone fragments and soft tissue;
-Early, pain-free mobilization returning the patient to function as quickly as possible.
This course will also cover the concepts of absolute and relative stability of soft tissue injury as applied, in context, for each limb segment’s major fracture types.

This course is the foundation for the AO North America curriculum, which teaches the surgeon how to manage trauma and trauma reconstruction. The goal of this course is not to advocate the treatment of all fractures by surgical fixation, but rather, to help ensure that when surgery is carried out, that it is done properly based upon principles, appropriate preoperative planning, and decision making.

AOSpine Seminar - Managing Complications: Clinically, Ethically and Legally

October 24, 2020 to October 25, 2020
Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront, Jacksonville, Florida 32202, United States
Adverse events in spinal surgery happen. Some of these are avoidable and can be attributed to the surgical team and others are merely risks from the procedure. Whether it is pre-operative, intra-operative or post-operative, surgeons need to know how to deal with these complications not only from a clinical perspective but also from a legal, ethical and psychological perspective as well.

During this course, a panel of experts will cover the spectrum of these perspectives to include:

-Clinical approaches to complications
-Avoiding compensable events
-Risk management
-How to prepare for the worst
-Talking with the family

This course has limited enrollment and is open to practicing orthopedic spine surgeons and neurosurgeons. The goal of this course is to discuss in a closed confidential environment the seriously adverse complication cases everyone hears about and never wants to live through.

AOTrauma Course - Basic Principles of Fracture Management

November 19, 2020 to November 22, 2020
Hilton Baltimore, Baltimore, Maryland 21201, United States
This Basic Principles of Fracture Management course is designed to provide the participant with a fundamental knowledge of the operative treatment of fractures according to the AO principles.

The four guiding AO principles of fracture fixation are:

-Anatomic reduction of the fracture fragments, particularly in joint fractures;
-Stable fixation to ensure proper healing of the fracture while allowing surrounding tissue to move and strengthen;
-Atraumatic surgical techniques to preserve the blood supply to the bone fragments and soft tissue;
-Early, pain-free mobilization returning the patient to function as quickly as possible.

This course will also cover the concepts of absolute and relative stability of soft tissue injury as applied, in context, for each limb segment’s major fracture types.

This course is the foundation for the AO North America curriculum, which teaches the surgeon how to manage trauma and trauma reconstruction. The goal of this course is not to advocate the treatment of all fractures by surgical fixation, but rather, to help ensure that when surgery is carried out, that it is done properly based upon principles, appropriate preoperative planning, and decision making.
