Workshop Description

In this course, you’ll be trained to diagnose CrCLD as well as detect “the silent ExCap assassin” co-morbidities that will help you to steer clear of danger and client disappointment.  You’ll learn to honestly educate your clients about the treatment options and their outcome with a simplified breakdown of the latest research.  You’ll learn the risk factors for medial meniscal injury as well as how to visualize, probe and treat meniscal tears.  You’ll get hours of hands-on training (both plastic bones and cadaver specimens) to help you get your suture anchors in just the right spot and your suture tension just right.

Workshop Objectives

When it comes to patellar luxation, our friendly “no attitude” faculty will give you tips and technique nuances that you’ll never find in the textbooks like: 

  • How to pick the winners (why grade 1-2 luxation is a different disease than grade 3-4 luxation) 
  • How to decide if your patient needs a trochleoplasty (and what the dimensions should be) 
  • How to decide if your patient needs a tibial crest transposition (and a handful of tricks to make it easier to perform)  

You’ll return to your practice with a whole new and updated understanding of CrCL disease and patellar luxation.  You’ll be eager to offer surgical treatment when it makes sense for your patient & client … and you’ll be wise enough to avoid those cases for which the predicted outcome is sketchy.


This workshop is appropriate for specialists and general practitioners who have an interest in improving their orthopedic knowledge and skills.
