This program will begin with Orthopaedic resident research presentations on the following subjects: MRI evaluation of surgical tourniquet effects on the popliteal neurovascular bundle, evaluation of pitching injuries in collegiate baseball, alternative graft preparations using hamstring in ACL reconstruction, comparison of spiked washer repair and suture for arcuate fracture repair.

This conference will also highlight a presentation by a distinguished visiting guest professor on the topic of operative treatment in total hip arthroplasty.

This program should be of interest to Orthopaedic surgeons, basic scientists, nurses, therapists and other health professionals who manage Orthopaedic patients.
