The Sports Medicine Surgeon's Handbook for Shoulder Arthroplasty

Joseph A. Abboud MD; Stephen F. Brockmeier MD; Seth C. Gamradt, MD; Nikhil N. Verma MD

 

Course Description:

Most practicing orthopaedic sports medicine surgeons perform shoulder arthroplasty but have received little training. This demand will continue to rise, as more patients in their practice are requiring shoulder arthroplasty. The purpose of this course is to allow practicing surgeons who are familiar with open and arthroscopic shoulder surgery to gradually transition to performing shoulder arthroplasty.  The topics covered will include a step by step preparation for shoulder arthroplasty.  This will be a cased based instructional course, which includes pre-op planning/templating, surgical exposure and soft tissue releases, glenoid exposure and preparation, choosing the right implant, fixation methods, post-operative care including pain management and physical therapy protocols.

 

Course Objectives:

  • Participants should be able to appropriately indicate operative and non-operative care, and pre-op plan and template for shoulder arthroplasty.  Discussion and cases of humeral and glenoid deformity, and the nuances will be included.
  • At the completion of this session, participants should be able to perform a surgical approach to the glenohumeral joint, capsular releases, retractor choices and proper retractor placement to obtain adequate glenoid exposure and preparation
  • Participants should be able to choose the right implant (anatomic versus reverse) for each patient and understand the differences and implications for each implant design.  Nuances of glenoid design, ingrowth, inset and augmentation will be included.
  • At the completion of this session, participants should be able to decide between fixation methods (cemented vs cementless), stem length (short vs long), offset (lateral versus medial), neck angle (135 vs 155).
  • At the completion of this session, participants should be able to know the appropriate post-operative management including pain management, opiate minimization and therapy protocols.
