Musculoskeletal Ultrasound of the Shoulder, Hip and Spine Training Course

January 11, 2021
The Hemophilia and Thrombosis Treatment Center (HTC): San Diego, California 92121, United States
Musculoskeletal Ultrasound of the Shoulder, Hip and Spine Training Course will provide hands-on training in musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSKUS) of the hip, sacroiliac joint and shoulder. The objective of the course is to enable participants to use MSKUS as a point-of care imaging tool to assist with the diagnosis of painful joint. Leading MSK ultrasound experts will cover ultrasound scanning techniques, sonoanatomy, and sonopathology, including MSKUS examination of hemophilic these groups of joints. Diagnosis of iliopsoas bleeds and trochanteric pain will be highlighted.

Format: Interactive lectures, case presentations, round table discussions, and hands-on scanning.

The course is limited to 20 participants.

AO Spine NA Principles and Treatment in Spinal Disorders for Residents

January 29, 2021 to January 30, 2021
Las Vegas, Nevada 89109, United States
AO Spine North America Principles courses are intended to address the additional training needs and practice gaps of the orthopaedic and neurological spine residents. This course is designed to offer residents the opportunity to learn the AO principles of anatomic reduction of fracture fragments; stable fixation to ensure proper healing while allowing the surrounding tissue to strengthen; atraumatic surgical technique to preserve the blood supply to the bone fragments and soft tissue; and early, pain-free mobilization so the patient can be returned to function as soon as possible as they apply to spinal surgery. The course will also provide basic exposure to spinal disorders from expert teaching faculty from both orthopaedic and neurological spine surgery.

The modular course format will focus on the spine patient in a conceptual, case study and practical exercise format. Participants in small groups will rotate through each module over the 2-day period. All participants are encouraged to bring HIPAA compliant cases for discussion to maximize their experience at the course.
