Goal of the course
The AO Recon Online Course—Principles of Total Hip and Knee Arthroplasty teaches fundamental principles and current concepts in the treatment of patients with a need for primary arthroplasty in the hip and knee. This course is the initial step along the path of lifelong learning in the area of joint arthroplasty. Based on a patient-centered approach this course focuses on the key principles of primary arthroplasty.
This online version of the course is modular in structure and highly interactive. Short, evidence-based lectures cover the key information required. Moderated case discussions in small groups will expand on each topic and help participants to develop decision-making and surgical management skills. Participants will share their experience with faculty and peers. All factors related to achieving the best possible outcomes in primary arthroplasty will be covered.
