Current Concepts in Joint Replacement® (CCJR) - SPRING 2020 - A Continuing Medical Education Program

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Current Concepts in Joint Replacement® (CCJR) is a unique educational format that has contributed to the education of thousands of orthopaedic surgeons around the world over the last three decades. An international faculty consisting of contemporary thought leaders discuss topics related to hip, knee and shoulder arthroplasty. Each meeting is recorded in its entirety and placed on the CCJR website for future reference to assist in providing the highest possible standard of care for orthopaedic patients.

This CME program is open to orthopaedic surgeons, residents, nurses, and members of the orthopaedic and allied health industries.
• This meeting will focus on both primary and revision outcomes, surgical approaches, current implant designs and materials including the clinical manifestations of metal-on-metal articulations and the use of tapers, as well as address problems of fixation, bone deficiency, instability, trauma, and infection for hip, knee, and shoulder replacement.
• Topics delve into a triad of design, patient factors, and technical proficiency responsible for achieving clinical longevity in hip, knee, and shoulder reconstruction.
• Hemi and total shoulder arthroplasty topics focus on improved instrumentation, design modularity, evolving surgical techniques, and
optimal patient outcomes.
• An assemblage of contemporary thought leaders will probe the boundaries of these problems and offer solutions for joint pathologies where arthroplasty is indicated.
• Plenary commentary, didactic clinical reports, technique videos, debate, case challenges, and live surgery define the formats of presentation, which provide an optimal learning opportunity for orthopaedic surgeons and other allied professionals involved in joint reconstruction.

As a result of attending this CME program, the participant will be able to:
• Appraise evolving surgical techniques and implant technologies through didactic and interactive live presentation as well as evaluate early and longterm clinical outcomes.
• Identify problems and concerns relevant to hip, knee, and shoulder arthroplasty including polyethylene wear, short and long term tissue
response, inter-component failure, and peri-prosthetic fracture.
• Discuss optimal clinical application of current and evolving fixation techniques in primary and revision procedures including cement,
hydroxyapatite, porous coating, press fit, impaction grafting, and evolving porous metal technologies.
• Appreciate current solution options for hip, knee, and shoulder arthroplasty failure where revision is an endpoint and understand the contributory roles of bone loss, soft tissue deficiency, and infection.

• Abstract Book, Video Proceedings, and Live Surgeries
• Three Receptions
• Three Buffet Breakfasts
• Two Lunches
