This is a great chance for you to get the latest advances in shoulder arthroplasty.
Baseball Health Network founding member Dr. Christopher Ahmad and the team at Columbia Orthopedics invite you to a free live webinar event – Advances in Shoulder Arthroplasty: An Evidence Based Update for 2018 – on May 22 at 8 PM EDT.
The management and treatment options for early, middle, and late stage shoulder arthritis has been under much debate in recent years. As implant technology improves, so do the treatment options available to surgeons.
Sound judgment and understanding the anatomic difference can improve treatment outcomes. This course will discuss both empirical research and clinical findings related to: stem design and length, new evidence surrounding next generation glenoid implants, and debates on what materials are best for a reverse total shoulder with glenoid deficiencies.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be better able to:
- Understand the different clinical indications for different stem designs in Total Shoulder Replacements
- Gain better understanding of the techniques used in anatomic Total Shoulder Replacement
- Arthroscopic indications and treatment options for treating patients with Total Shoulder Replacement
- Guide a patient through post-surgical planning, rehabilitation, and return to activities of daily living
