PATIENT PORTAL

Virginia Goes To AAHKS

Virginia; AAHKS

The first week of November, I had the opportunity to journey to Dallas, Texas and attend the 2017 AAHKS (American Association for Hip and Knee Surgeons) annual meeting. I spent 2 solid days listening to papers and symposiums, selected from over 1400 submitted, to be reviewed at the annual AAHKS meeting. Topics covered ranged from antibiotic coverage, to surgical technique, how to increase patient outcomes and avoid patient complications. In addition to the talks presented, there was a large exhibit hall with vendors demonstrating everything from surgical implants to positioning devices and products to aid in patient care. I was also able to visit with and discuss processes with other orthopedic providers. It was a great learning experience and I look forward to bringing back to our practice the new evidence based recommendations and assisting to implement them at Tadje Orthopaedics.
