View Recording of Functional Cup Position Webinar
AAHKS hosted the “Functional Cup Position to Avoid Instability in Total Hip Arthroplasty – the Hip/Spine Relationship” webinar on September 28, 2016 moderated by Dr. Douglas Padgett, MD. Be sure to check out a great topic and great faculty: Jonathan M. Vigdorchik, MD, Seth A. Jerabek, MD and Erik N. Hansen, MD!
Description: The mobility of the spine is intimately associated with alignment, motion, and complications after total hip arthroplasty (THA). Patients with degenerative arthritis in the hip and spine can have significantly altered body kinematics and varying lumbar-pelvic-femoral alignment. Hip surgeons must therefore understand and incorporate spinal pathology into the surgical plan. Acetabular anteversion and inclination change during human motion as the pelvis flexes and extends when transitioning from supine to standing, and from standing to sitting positions. Understanding this hip-spine relationship will help surgeons identify patients who are at an increased risk for dislocation or impingement in an effort to decrease post-operative instability and thus create patient specific surgical plans to improve clinical outcomes.

As the demand for total joint arthroplasty continues to escalate, there is a push to increase quality, decrease cost and minimize risk. US healthcare reforms are currently being implemented in an attempt to reduce cost and improve the care of patients. This webinar, moderated by Ryan M. Nunley, MD, will focus on rapid recovery and short stay total joint replacement. Topics include:
- “Intraoperative and Pain Management Solutions for Rapid Recovery” presented by Mark W. Pagnano, MD
- “Hospital Programs for Rapid Recovery – Making the Stay Brief and Safe” presented by Ryan M. Nunley, MD
- “Avoiding Readmissions – Support Systems Required after Discharge to Continue Rapid Recovery” presented by C. Lowry Barnes, MD
