The First Annual U.S. Comprehensive Course on Total Hip Resurfacing Arthroplasty will occur in Annapolis, Maryland on Friday, November 9 and Saturday, November 10, 2007. This CME-accredited course will bring together the world leaders in total hip resurfacing for a combination of didactic presentations, focused discussions, and surgical demonstrations. The goal is to identify, outline, and discuss the current state of knowledge in the clinical and basic sciences as they pertain to resurfacing technology.

A Live Surgical Demonstrations Pre-Course is slated for Thursday, November 8, 2007. This pre-course will emphasize the surgical principles of resurfacing with any device (prostheses from five separate companies will be featured).

When the pre-course is combined with the hands-on saw bone lab and the optional cadaver lab offered during the Total Hip Resurfacing Arthroplasty Course, the experience will enable orthopaedic hip surgeons to have the necessary foundation to perform total hip resurfacing.

Attending this pre-course and the Hip Resurfacing Arthroplasty Course will provide the physician with a maximum of 23 AMA PR Category 1 Credits(TM).
