This course aims to maximize patient outcomes following a periprosthetic fracture by improving the practicing surgeon's ability to recognize, classify, plan, and perform internal fixation and revision procedures for total joint arthroplasty around the hip and knee prostheses.

The course is for Senior, experienced (more than 5 years) consultant/practicing surgeons:

  • General orthopedic surgeons
  • Fracture specialists
  • Arthroplasty specialists
  • Surgeons experienced with both trauma and arthroplasty.

Top national, regional, and international faculty
