Aims:

We often encounter young adult patients presenting with hip problems especially hip dysplasia in our practice. Hip reconstruction is an attractive option to prevent the early onset of osteoarthritis.

Proximal femur osteotomies serve to re-orientate the femoral head while peri-acetabular osteotomies serve to redirect the acetabulum to provide improved coverage of the femoral head.

This program aims to equip the orthopaedic surgeon with better knowledge and understanding of the different types of hip reconstruction available as well as provide hands-on practice on the technical details of this group of complex procedures through an interactive saw-bone workshop.

Scope:

The hands-on saw-bone workshop on hip reconstruction to include the various roles, indications, planning and execution of:
  • Proximal femur realignment osteotomies
  • Redirectional peri-acetabular osetotomies (Triple innominate, Ganz)
There will be a special focus on a cadaveric demonstration of the Ganz peri-acetabular osteotomy.
