Total Hip Arthroplasty in Dysplastic Hips

Moderator:  Brian M. Curtin, MD
Date: March 26, 2019
Time: 3:00 p.m. (CDT)

This webinar is designed for discussion of important anatomical references in both low and high dislocated hips, how to plan the surgery and which implant options are suitable. We will also discuss the maximum acceptable lengthening, when and how to place the acetabular cup at the original anatomical site, and different techniques to work the dysplastic femur with or without shortening osteotomy at the subtrochanteric or distal level. Surgical tricks and tips will be discussed by experienced surgeons.

A Case-Based Approach to Unicondylar Knee Arthroplasty – Recording

Moderator:  Adolph V. Lombardi, Jr., MD
Date: September 25, 2018

Partial knee arthroplasty (UKA) has experienced increased growth in the last several years. Patient selection along with an understanding of which ancillary tests are necessary has generated much discussion. Medial and Lateral UKA can be a technically demanding procedure for the surgeon if not performed frequently. This symposium will provide up to date information allowing for success in performing a unicompartmental knee arthroplasty and will dispel mistaken thoughts as to its outcome and longevity. Illustrative cases will be discussed and audience participation with be solicited.


  • Describe the current indications and understand proper patient selection for medial and lateral unicompartmental knee arthroplasty.
  • Identify the clinical presentation as well as radiographic evaluation and imaging studies which should be obtained preoperatively to determine patient selection for partial knee arthroplasty.
  • Review Tips and tricks for a Medial Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty.
  • Review Tips and tricks for a Lateral Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty.
  • Plan the execution of a Revision of Partial Knee Arthroplasty to a Total Knee Arthroplasty.
