About the 2019 Annual Holiday Hip and Knee Course
Total knee and hip replacements are among some of the most common inpatient procedures. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, about 719,000 total knee replacements and 332,000 total hip replacements are performed in the United States each year. Continued modifications in surgical techniques and materials have further enhanced patient outcomes. To ensure effective implementation of such techniques and materials, it is important that orthopaedic surgeons have the current knowledge necessary to properly perform a total knee or hip replacement, provide optimal care and treatment, recognize and manage post-operative complications, and identify and appraise the current controversies in the care and treatment of knee and hip disorders in various patient populations. Hospital for Special Surgery will address these needs through the 2019 Annual Holiday Knee & Hip Course, which will include faculty from HSS and around the globe. The service performs more knee and hip replacements than any other hospital in the U.S. and has unparalleled experience treating complex conditions.
