NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital 10th Annual Articular Cartilage Repair Course is organized by New York University (NYU) School of Medicine and will be held on Sep 21, 2019 at NYU Langone Health, New York City, New York, United States of America.
Target Audience :
Orthopedic surgeons, primary care sports medicine physicians, physiatrists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, advanced practice providers, nurses, residents, and fellows
Course Description :
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.
Course Objectives :
After participating in this activity, clinicians should be able to:
• Base treatment decisions for symptomatic cartilage injuries on patient-specific and defect-specific variables as well as awareness of indications, surgical techniques, and clinical outcomes of the available treatment options
• Explain the urgency of treatment of isolated chondral and osteochondral defects to prevent symptomatic degeneration of the joint, including benefits of early surgical intervention
• Utilize different surgical techniques and augmentation to treat symptomatic cartilage lesions based on patient specific factors to optimize outcomes
• Describe advances in MRI and other diagnostic imaging modalities for articular cartilage and develop strategies for incorporating them into practice
• Identify the type of rehab protocol needed to safely and effectively treat patients with articular cartilage lesions based on surgery, size, and location of the lesion
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
