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

Orthopaedic Trauma: Fracture Problems in the Real World. Who to Fix and When to Replace

October 17, 2020
Sofitel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, California 90048, United States
The 2020 Orthopaedic Trauma symposium will present the latest operative and non-operative techniques and strategies used in the care of patients with complex upper- and lower-extremity injuries. Morning sessions will address fractures of the elbow and proximal humerus. Afternoon sessions will focus on traumatic injuries to hip and knee. Each session will offer participants ample time for questions and discussion. A unique feature of this year’s program is a lunch-and-learn performance improvement session with content highlighting models for skill development, “Kelee meditation” and visualization techniques. The program will close with a final session featuring practical case-based discussions of best practices.

Learning Objectives:

-Share experience and approaches to challenging cases with colleagues and expert faculty to enhance understanding of recommended treatment and management strategies
-Recognize the challenges posed by bone loss, infections, nonunions, and other issues and take steps to mitigate complications and adverse outcomes
-Identify unique and difficult fracture patterns and problems in the orthopedic trauma patient and utilize the best treatment options and algorithms for these difficult cases
-Apply performance improvement tips to improve interactions that can result in enhanced patient and provider outcomes and experiences

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.

6th Annual Spine Trauma Summit

December 11, 2020 to December 12, 2020
Seattle Science Foundation, Seattle, Washington 98122, United States
The 6th Annual Spine Trauma Summit provides an update on the current evidence-based practices in spine trauma care. The meeting combines lectures with interactive sessions to address questions and develop a consensus on best practices for all key areas of spinal cord injuries. This course will enhance recognition of key injury variables and provide important updates on spinal cord injury management and the latest techniques in minimally invasive spine fracture treatment. Participants will receive hands-on training using the most advanced technologies available to improve their cognitive as well as haptic skill sets.

AO Trauma NA Course: New England Regional Fracture Summit

January 15, 2021 to January 18, 2021
Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Conference Center: Stowe, Vermont 05672, United States
The New England Regional Summit is a discussion forum where nationally prominent local trauma experts interact with community-based orthopedic surgeons who are actively involved in the treatment of patients with fractures.

This informal, almost entirely discussion-based Summit is highly interactive with clinical presentations that include:

-Tips, tricks and techniques on how the faculty tackle clinical problems
-Frank confidential discussions about how to manage cases “on the fringe of normal” – a routine case that isn’t going normally
-Complications and frustrations of the experts and how they dealt with them
Each session incorporates an alternating case presentation-discussion format followed by participant case presentations. All participants are strongly encouraged to bring personal cases for discussion to optimize their personal experience and involvement – you will personally get more out of this course as a result.
