The following industry-sponsored symposium takes place on Thursday, November 7 at the 2019 AAHKS Annual Meeting:
Emerging Trends in Orthopedics: Innovation for Better Results
10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
The long-term survivorship and high patient satisfaction rates for total joint arthroplasties have been well documented subjects for the past decade. With the evolving medical landscape, providers are searching for ways to receive even more out of their implants, reduce the burden on health systems, and return patients to full function faster. The surgeons on this panel have adopted several key strategies to improve their practice and achieve better results for their practices:
- David J. Backstein, MD and Ritesh R. Shah, MD will discuss the benefits of introducing medial-pivot kinematics into practice, and how implant selection has driven better results in both primary and revision TKA.
- James C. Chow, MD and Stephen B. Murphy, MD will discuss how superior portal assisted total hip arthroplasty has benefited their patients, practice, and hospital system by getting patients home faster and reducing costs.
- A panel discussion will speak to the increasing popularity of total joints in the outpatient setting and what can be done to promote better results in your practice.
