Wisconsin Orthopaedic Society 2015 Annual Meeting
This year’s program will provide a current update on issues relevant to practicing orthopaedic providers in Wisconsin, with focus on hip and knee preservation. Specific clinical & research issue is optimization of the evaluation & treatment process for the benefit of our patients, with goal towards prolonging joint health and function.
Pre-arthritic hip and knee joint injuries and overuse conditions are common, especially in younger active populations and can cause significant symptoms, impairment, and compromise of quality of life. Many of these conditions, for example cartilage or meniscus root avulsion injuries in the knee and pre-disposing impingement processes in the hip are not widely recognized or well understood in the orthopaedic community. Research efforts to understand the natural history of these conditions and clinical efforts to optimize diagnosis and treatment holds promise to improve function and quality of life for the individual with ultimate benefit to society at large.
Hours of Participation for Allied Health Care Professionals
The Medical College of Wisconsin designates this activity for up to 8.5 hours of participation for continuing education for allied health professionals.
At the conclusion of this activity, I will be able to:
- Examine the diagnosis and treatment of pre-arthritic conditions in the knee
- Illustrate the current strategies for diagnosis and treatment of pre-arthritic conditions in the hip
- Discuss the natural history of pre-arthritic hip and knee conditions to optimize treatment consul towards patients
