Maintain surgical excellence while navigating the latest developments in knee and hip arthroplasty. Join us for our three-day 2019 Annual Holiday Knee & Hip Course, where globally-recognized faculty will share knowledge to help you stay up-to-date with the best practices in care and treatment. The Adult Reconstruction and Joint Replacement (ARJR) Service at HSS performs more knee and hip replacements than any other hospital in the U.S. and has unparalleled experience treating complex conditions.
Now in its 31st year, course highlights include case-based debates on procedures and robot-assisted surgery; tips and tricks for total knee and hip replacements; symposiums on arthroplasty and perioperative medicine; and more. You’ll come away from our course with the insight to recognize and manage postoperative complications, and assess the current controversies in the care and treatment of knee and hip disorders in various patient populations.


This activity is targeted to orthopaedic surgeons, physician assistants, physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, and nurses. Residents, fellows, and medical students may benefit from attending this activity.
