WEBINAR DESCRIPTION

Format: Live webinar featuring 8-minute presentations and 15-minute discussion.

Webinar Scope:
Practicing orthopaedic surgeons need to periodically update their knowledge per the most recent clinical research findings. Additionally, reviewing, analyzing and discussing evidence-based practices, emerging practice trends and patient outcomes provides an opportunity to raise the overall surgeon competence in knee arthroplasty. This educational activity is intended to equip practicing orthopaedic surgeons with the state-of-the art information and cutting-edge strategies aimed at enhancing the care of the patients undergoing unicompartmental arthroplasty (UKA).

Objectives:
• Investigate the research, practice patterns and outcomes contributing to effective use of UKA.
• Determine the indications for the UKA, including medial and lateral UKA
• Evaluate and differentiate among the various types of implants available for UKA
• Appropriately evaluate and manage a patient with a painful UKA

CME Credit:
The American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) designates this live activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
