The Scientific Program and Sir Robert Jones Lecture – NYU Langone Medical Center
May 5, 2016 - May 6, 2016
The annual Sir Robert Jones Lecture, first delivered at the Hospital for Joint Diseases Orthopaedic Institute in 1930, continues the tradition of excellence in orthopaedics through the work of distinguished contemporary scholars and also honours the achievements of Sir Robert Jones. The papers presented are a combination of clinical experiences and results as well as basic science research that involves anatomical, biomechanical and animal research. This year’s lectures are devoted to “Peri-Operative Morbidity in Bilateral TKR” and “New Technology: Can We Afford It?”
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Create strategies to incorporate knowledge of epidemiological issues as well as new techniques in each orthopaedic surgical subspecialty;
- Apply current strategies to lower risk of infection, contamination, and surgical complications;
- Identify risk factors associated with morbidity in bilateral TKR and manage adverse events appropriately.
This course is for NYU Langone and NYU Lutheran Department of Orthopaedic Surgery attending staff, alumni, fellows, residents.
