May 18, 2018 - May 19, 2018

Course Description

This course is designed to present advanced instruction of upper and lower extremity trauma to practicing orthopaedic surgeons and orthopaedic residents who have working knowledge of present technology. Participants will be updated on the new techniques and philosophies in the modern management of orthopaedic trauma. Participants will learn to identify and understand the appropriate salvage procedures for difficult trauma cases through didactic lectures, cases presentations and hands-on workshops.
