Enhanced technologies including three-dimensional planning and printing, patient-specific instruments and implants, computer-assisted surgical instruments, and robotic surgery, have revolutionized hip and knee arthroplasty. This webinar will review the advantages and disadvantages of each of these technologies to allow the arthroplasty surgeon to successfully integrate them into their current practice.
1. Identify the principles of three-dimensional evaluation of patient anatomy to develop an appropriate surgical plan to optimize patient outcomes.
2. Analyze evidence-based studies on patient-specific instruments and implants and apply the results to clinical scenarios.
3. Compare the various technologies in robotic-assisted hip and knee arthroplasty to facilitate implementation in the operating room.
4. Discuss the role of enhanced technologies and how to implement in a cost effective way for patients, your practice, and your hospital.
