At the Bobby Menges Memorial HSS Limb Deformity Course 2020: A Special Focus on Adult Limb Reconstruction, experts in alignment and deformity correction will use didactics, case presentations and discussions, and hands-on sawbones labs to share their knowledge of available techniques.
Following this program, participants will be able to diagnose and incorporate into practice the appropriate surgical treatments for limb deformity correction, limb salvage, and limb lengthening.
HSS continuing medical education activities are intended to improve the quality of patient care and safety. At the completion of the course, the participant will:
• Describe and recognize various orthopaedic conditions that can be treated safely with limb lengthening and reconstruction techniques. Participants will diagnose and determine the appropriate surgical treatment for these conditions.
• Define key measurements and alignments in limb deformity and malalignment correction. They will conduct these measurements in practice.
• Describe and be able to incorporate into their practice current methods for acute deformity correction, including proximal tibial and distal femur osteotomies.
• Review and use new technologies for limb deformity correction, such as updated hexapod external fixators and the internal lengthening intramedullary nail. They will determine when to appropriately use these new technologies in practice.
• Review and use new technologies for limb salvage and replacement, such as osseointegration. They will determine when to appropriately use these new technologies in practice.
