Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics Physicians Train Orthopedic Surgeons

Posted May 12 2009 6:01pm
In early September, the Center for Joint Preservation and Replacemen t and the International Center for Limb Lengthening (ICLL) will host two educational events: the Third Annual Hip Joint Preservation and Resurfacing Arthroplasty Course and the 19th Annual Baltimore Limb Deformity Course.

Dr. Michael Mont of the Center for Joint Preservation and Replacement will be co-directing the Third Annual Hip Joint Preservation and Resurfacing Arthroplasty Course along with Dr. Thomas Schmalzried of Los Angeles, Calif. Drs. Mont and Schmalzried are two of the most respected joint replacement surgeons in the United States. In fact, Dr. Mont has performed more than 2,000 hip resurfacing procedures. This year’s course will feature a world-renowned faculty that will be discussing the latest research and treatment options.

The ICLL physicians conduct the Baltimore Limb Deformity Course, which provides a forum for physicians from all over the world to be able to share knowledge, innovative techniques and new treatment options. Drs. John Herzenberg, Janet Conway, Shawn Standard and Bradley Lamm will be conducting hands-on labs and lectures on topics such as external fixation for the foot and ankle, deformity correction techniques, osteomyelitis and segmental bone defects. Last year’s course attracted more than 235 attendees from almost 40 countries and 25 states.

More information about each course is available online at www.hipresurfacingcourse.com and www.deformitycourse.com.
