15th Annual Current Solutions in Orthopaedic Trauma

November 10, 2017 - November 12, 2017

This year we’re moving to Tampa!

In light of the effects of Hurricane Irma in Florida, we have received several calls from registrants wondering about the status of the upcoming Current Solutions in Orthopaedic Trauma course. Tampa was not heavily affected like our Southern neighbors. The Renaissance International Plaza Hotel and FIVE Labs did not sustain any damages. Therefore, the Current Solutions in Orthopaedic Trauma will continue as planned. We look forward to seeing you in Tampa in November!

Course Description

This course is designed to provide the orthopaedic surgeon with a comprehensive update on the evolving concepts and techniques in orthopaedic trauma. International leaders in the field of orthopaedic traumatology will present their experience, techniques, challenging cases, and offer instruction in hands-on workshops.


Target Audience

Orthopaedic surgeons, fellows, residents, physician assistants, surgical assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, industry professionals and other healthcare professionals whose scope of practice includes orthopaedic trauma.

  • Discuss emerging techniques in upper and lower extremities and compare to current treatment options
