3rd Annual Anterior Hip Course

September 18 - 20, 2014 - Houston, Texas

Please join us for the 3rd Annual Anterior Hip Course, September 18 – 20, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency Houston Downtown in Houston, TX. The anterior approach for total hip replacement is an important surgical alternative to the traditional hip replacement protocol: The approach is tissue-sparing and results in less pain, faster patient recovery, and improved mobility related to the lesser trauma provided by the procedure. The 3rd Annual Anterior Hip Course will offer a thorough education on the surgical and patient processes associated with the anterior hip approach, from patient selection through patient recovery and follow-up. To accommodate varying levels of familiarity with this procedure, we are offering a 2-part course. Deadline to register is September 18, 2014. CME Credits: Maximum of 13 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits(s).

22nd Annual Perspectives in Total Joint Arthroplasty: Updates in Knee Replacement

October 9 - 11, 2014 - Fall River, Kansas

The Annual Perspectives in Total Joint Arthroplasty Course was started in 1992 by David A. McQueen, MD, an orthopedic surgeon with an adult reconstructive private practice and continues to promote the highest standards of orthopaedic practice by educating practitioners, promoting research, and encouraging communication between opinion leaders and community based physicians. Sadly, Dr. McQueen passed away in 2013, but we are honored to continue Dr. McQueen’s legacy through this year’s course. Presentations at the David A. McQueen Memorial 22nd Annual Perspectives in Total Joint Arthroplasty: Updates in Knee Replacement meeting will focus on the knee, providing new insights into the challenges of managing primary and revision total knee arthroplasty patients. The faculty will examine the latest research on implant designs, take on the controversy of surgical approaches for the total knee, and offer strategies for overcoming difficulties in revision procedures.

This meeting will feature:

  • An intimate setting that allows for a productive learning environment
  • Interactive case presentations with “Fireside Chats”

January 15 - 18, 2015 - Vail, Colorado

ICJR’s 6th Annual Winter Hip & Knee Course was a great success with over 200 attendees and an internationally renown faculty. We look forward to another excellent program in 2015 and hope you will plan to join us for the 7th Annual Winter Hip & Knee Course!

The 7th Annual Winter Hip & Knee Course provides the optimal architecture for interactive medical education and communication. This four-day meeting focuses on primary replacement and revision hips and knees as well as the major healthcare issues related to orthopaedic surgery.

Virtually every aspect of joint replacement will be examined through case-based learning, video vignettes, and audience interaction. In addition, we’ve added cadaver labs to provide attendees with the opportunity for hands-on training with our expert faculty on the latest, cutting-edge procedures and technology for hip & knee arthroplasty. The meeting will also examine issues related to the peri-operative environment, including thrombosis, wound and pain management, blood conservation, quality mandates, practice management and economics.

Each of these educational areas is timely and central to the orthopaedic surgeon’s effort to maintain surgical excellence while navigating the evolutionary changes taking place throughout the healthcare system.


2015 ICJR Hip Japan

January 16 - 17, 2015 - Kita-ku, Osaka City, Japan

We are honored to have the International Congress for Joint Reconstruction (ICJR) Hip Japan at the CONGRE Convention Center at January 16-17, 2015. Since Dr. W. Norman Scott and his co-founders formed the ICJR to establish a sense of professional community and to help educate the next generation of joint reconstruction surgeons, the ICJR meeting has been hosted by nations all over the world. This is the second ICJR meeting in Japan and we would like to provide an opportunity to exchange cutting-edge information focusing on total hip arthroplasty (THA). The ICJR Hip Japan consists of lectures and symposium by the distinguished international orthopedic surgeons. The topics include the present status of the metal on metal, past and future of the articulating surfaces and surgical approachs etc. We are confident that the attendees will obtain updated information on THA.

Although THA has become a standard operation in the field of orthopedics, many controversial issues still remain. Many publications and new implants are produced every year and it is touted as these issues have been resolved. Therefore, it is important to be exposed to state-of-the-art surgical skills, concepts, and technology to avoid the overloaded information. As president of the ICJR Hip Japan, I warmly invite orthopedic surgeons, engineers, researchers, and allied health practitioners to Osaka next January. Please enjoy this novel and intellectually stimulating experience.
