Explore New Arthroscopy Techniques at FORE’s Orthopaedic Conferences

Arthroscopy Techniques

The Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education (FORE) highlights the latest arthroscopy techniques at a variety of orthopaedic conferences, including the FORE/AANA World Series of Live Surgery, Frontiers in Upper Extremity Surgery, Current Solutions in Orthopaedic Trauma, the Tampa Shoulder Course, and the Atlanta Trauma Symposium. These conferences are uniquely designed for busy orthopaedic professionals, introducing contemporary techniques and technologies in fast-paced, hands-on courses.

Benefit from a Diverse Conference Format

The world-renowned faculty who teach at FORE’s courses use a variety of formats to discuss novel arthroscopy techniques, including:

  • Presentations
  • Live surgical demonstrations
  • Hands-on bioskills labs
  • Panel discussions
  • Question-and-answer sessions

These conferences also address the critical issues of:

  • How to select appropriate candidates for arthroscopic surgery
  • How to minimize complications, as well as how to treat them if they occur
  • How to individualize a rehab program that will help patients recover following surgery

The agenda for each course includes plenty of time for 1-on-1 and small group discussions. This allows participants to gain an in-depth understanding of advanced arthroscopy techniques while gaining relevant insight from peers and widely respected leaders in the field. Small course sizes encourage debate and discussion.

Conference Spotlight: FORE/AANA World Series of Live Surgery

To attend a unique conference dedicated to teaching arthroscopy techniques, register for FORE/AANA World Series of Live Surgery. This conference features more than a dozen real-time demonstrations of knee, shoulder, elbow, and hip procedures, providing a highly useful educational experience for surgeons looking to hone their technical skills.

For example, which procedure would you recommend for a patient with a massive rotator cuff tear? You might consider reverse shoulder arthroplasty, partial repair of the rotator cuff, or arthroscopic debridement with a biceps tenotomy or tenodesis. But those procedures have not had the best results, with many patients experiencing decreased functionality and complications. A relatively new surgical approach is superior capsular reconstruction, which involves attaching an allograft between the greater tuberosity of the humeral head and the superior glenoid neck. It has shown promise in helping patients maintain function in the native shoulder joint without limiting future surgical options.

The FORE/AANA World Series of Live Surgery will include a lecture on superior capsular reconstruction, as well as a real-time demonstration in which the surgeon performing the procedure will provide a thorough explanation of the surgery’s indications and the techniques involved. This will give attendees a head start toward incorporating superior capsular reconstruction into their personal practice or expanding their existing knowledge of the procedure.
