Description

  • “Hands-on” treatment sessions for the acute through the subacute phase of recovery
  • Video case studies of the latest in computer and robotic surgery techniques
  • Unique rehab considerations for the traditional and advanced surgical approaches
  • Key strategies to incorporate point-of-care PT/INR
  • Out-patient and beyond: Practical strategies for optimal function and joint longevity

Recent advances in the techniques, equipment, and components now make total joint replacement a commonplace, elective surgery for patients of all ages with compromised articular joint components. This challenges us to keep pace with surgical advances and the active expectations of their recipients.

Terry Rzepkowski, DPT, is excited to share his expertise and passion in orthopedics as a total joint rehabilitation specialist to provide an advanced understanding of total joint replacement surgery. Have you ever wanted to see the latest techniques in joint replacement… but your busy treatment schedule doesn’t allow you time? In this course, we will view together and discuss actual joint replacement videos to be able to discriminate between traditional options and all the very latest procedures for the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee and ankle.

We will also have “hands on” demonstrations and practice of intervention applications from the acute post-op through the advanced out-patient progression for the total joint replacement patient. You will leave with a greater understanding of the surgical process, be better equipped to help patients establish realistic expectations, have increased confidence in this ever-changing field and achieve improved patient reports of satisfaction following surgical interventions for Total Joint Replacement.

Outline

 

Determinants for Joint Replacement

  • Muscle imbalance
  • Acute injuries
  • Chronic conditions
  • Systemic conditions

Pre-operative Selection Determinants

  • Postural deformity
  • Diagnostic imaging
  • Function and pain level
  • Conservative therapies
  • Physical co-morbidities
  • Relative bone density
  • Post-op considerations: Acute rehab? Skilled nursing? Home? Which is the right choice in terms of accessibility, assistance, activity restrictions, and length of time?

Surgical Procedures with Video Presentations

  • Total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA)
  • Reverse TSA
  • Total elbow arthroplasty
  • Total hip arthroplasty (THA), conventional posterior and lateral approaches
  • Anterior THA and THA revision
  • Total knee replacement (TKA), conventional and subvastus
  • Total ankle replacement
  • The future of joint replacement:
    • Video radio graph assisted total elbow arthroplasty
    • Computerized and robotic assisted hip, knee and ankle replacement

Acute Post-op Recovery Interventions

  • Pain management, opioid tolerance and opioid induced constipation (OIC)
  • Wound care/Infection prevention demonstration of PICO dressing
  • VTE prophylaxis
    • Hands on demonstration
      • Point-of-care PT/INR
      • The latest recommendations on TED hose
      • Cold recirculator units and cold compression devices

Treatment Sessions for the Acute through the Subacute Recovery Phase

  • Physical/Occupational therapy
  • Movement restrictions
  • Demonstration of proper positioning
  • Hands on practice
    • UE: Donning and doffing of UE immobilizers
      • Shoulder, distal UE exercises, and active proximal scapular exercise, cervical stretching techniques
    • Hip: Immediate post-op exercises and progressions for the conventional/anterior approach hips, including transfer considerations
    • Knee: Immediate post-op exercises and progressions for the conventional/subvastus approach, forms of stretching

Out-patient and Beyond: Strategies for Optimal Function and Joint Longevity

  • Hands on activities
    • Shoulder: Manual techniques to build proximal scapular stabilization, progression to rotator cuff strengthening
    • Hip: Progression of core pelvic strengthening, proximal trunk stability, proprioceptive, balance, coordination activities, return of normal gait mechanics
    • Knee: Progression of flexibility exercises, patellar mobilization, importance of proper footwear, proprioceptive, balance, coordination activities, return of normal gait mechanics
