RSM ortho: Upper tibial osteotomy or unicompartmental replacement?
July 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm BST£20
This is the third webinar in a four-part series, If you would like to find out more about the series, please visit the Orthopaedics Section homepage.
Choosing the best surgical treatment for localised painful knee arthritis in relatively young and active individuals is fraught with difficulties. Joint preserving surgery will be compared with partial knee replacement in order to provide an algorithm to allow the orthopaedic surgeon to choose the most appropriate operation for an individual patient.
The topics of discussion will be as follows:
Gain understanding in the established principles of knee osteotomy and partial knee replacement including clinical indications & deformity assessment
Awareness of the latest osteotomy fixation methods, including the use of intramedullary fixation as well as the role of bone substitutes to enhance osteotomy healing
Understand the principles of partial knee replacement, including the role of minimally invasive and computer-assisted techniques
Appreciate importance of multidisciplinary rehabilitation and enhanced recovery after knee surgery
Two established national experts will debate the merits of joint preservation versus partial replacement in the management of the relatively young patient with localised knee arthritis. The latest developments and advantages of each surgical technique will be presented, including national registry outcomes. At the end of the webinar the audience will be invited to vote for the most appropriate technique in a 50-year-old male patient troubled by medial compartment knee arthritis.
A certificate of attendance and CPD certificate with CPD credit(s) will be issued to those joining the webinar live. Certificates of attendance for CPD will be automatically issued after 7 days, but only where a delegate watches the webinar live in its entirety.
