Master Course on Trauma & Joint Replacement Surgery

27th Aug 2011

The Indo German Orthopaedic Foundation in collaboration with Bangalore Orthopaedic Society successfully conducted a Master’s Course on Trauma and Joint Replacement Surgery on August 27th & 28th, 2011.

Course Synopsis
With the number of revision joint replacement surgeries on the increase it is prudent that the orthopaedic world takes a step back and reviews current practice. The tendency today even in trauma around the joints is to replace rather than preserve the joint. A debate regarding techniques of joint preservation in fractures as well as prosthetic failure and revision of replaced joints is the need of the hour to introduce good clinical practice in budding orthopaedic surgeons.

International Faculty comprising experts from all over the world in Trauma and Revision Joint Replacement Surgery debated on the techniques, treatment and management of this current dilemma (to fix or to replace) facing the young Indian Orthopaedic Surgeon.
