2015 7th Annual Winter Hip & Knee Course

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.
