NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital 10th Annual Articular Cartilage Repair Course
September 21, 2019
NYU Langone Health Alumni Hall, 33 3rd Ave New York City, New York, United States of America
This program will address the biologic approach to the treatment of cartilage injuries, using marrow stimulation techniques, osteochondral grafting, and cell-based repair methods to fill symptomatic defects. The program will encompass physical exam, imaging, basic science, repair, surgical and non-surgical options, and rehabilitation. Through a case-based approach there will be discussion about new research and practices, including basic science clinical applications; diagnostic imaging modalities; decision-making for cartilage restoration; osteochondral autografting; cell-based cartilage therapy; osteotomies in cartilage repair; meniscal transplantation and meniscus repair techniques; and osteochondral allograft transplantation. In addition, patient safety topics will be brought up in regards to the decision making process on what is best suited for the patient. Risks and benefits will be discussed along with alternatives – operative and non-operative management, as well as specific improvements, expectations, and patient demographics. There will also be a live surgical demonstration that will put into practice the concepts that will be discussed.
