About the Spring Meeting
The AAHKS Spring Meeting is intended to equip practicing orthopaedic surgeons with state-of-the art information and cutting-edge strategies to enhance overall surgeon competence related to the care of patients with arthritis and degenerative disease. It combines general and break-out sessions, emphasizing case-based learning in small group setting for most effective results.
Welcome ASRA and OTA
Several of the symposia at the 2017 AAHKS Spring Meeting will include experts from fields outside of hip and knee arthroplasty to discuss many of the challenges we all face in arthroplasty. The American Society of Regional Anesthesia (ASRA) will take part in a co-branded symposium moderated by AAHKS President William A. Jiranek, MD, FACS. This symposium will focus on the latest trends in multimodal pain management techniques. Additionally, speakers from the Orthopedic Trauma Association (OTA) will collaborate with AAHKS faculty to discuss current trends and management of periprosthetic fractures around total hip and knee arthroplasty.
