Description

We know you’ve been interested in the latest techniques in arthroscopic repair and joint replacement - but maybe your busy treatment schedule just has not allowed you the time? In this course, we will view together and discuss arthroscopic and joint replacement videos to keep pace with surgical advances and the active expectations of their recipients. You will leave with practice-changing insights focused on arthroscopic repair and joint replacement patients using hands-on lab activities.

How many times have you come across information on an advancement in orthopedic joint care, but the daily grind of patient scheduling, treatments, and documentation leave no time left in the day, week, or month to give it a second glance? Terry Rzepkowski, DTP, completely understands how frustrating that can be. This intensive course recording will provide that uninterrupted focus you desire, along with extensive hands-on lab opportunities that allow for renewed confidence in the treatment of your orthopedic joint patients.
