This master class is designed for senior joint replacement surgeons as well as for those just beginning their careers. The objective of this class is to update the knowledge of participants on the variety of technology applicable to joint replacement surgeons, ranging from different navigation systems and robots, to the artificial intelligence driven smart machines on the horizon. One highlight of the event would be to apprise the participants of the cutting edge tools available for personalized care for patients; including additive manufacturing of 3D printed joints. This new technology is expected to provide better iterative control for surgeons, plus increased patient outcome benefits, all at a lower the cost per patient.
The Master Class will provide appraisal of technology on the basis of evidence in literature as well as head to head comparisons of different technologies, discussing the advantages and limitations, according to our experienced panel. This would be a unique opportunity for joint replacement surgeons to update evidence-based information from the stalwarts in the field. After this event, it is hoped that participants can sense the direction of the “wind,” while preparing themselves to embrace and invest in the new technology wisely in their endeavors to give the very best to their patients.
