Are You Ready for Today's Joint Replacement Patient?
The World Health Organization has coined the years 2000-2010 the "Bone and Joint Decade." Joint arthroplasty is expected to double by the year 2020. The rise in joint replacement surgery, coupled with advances in cutting edge surgical techniques such as Computer Assisted Surgery (CAS) and less invasive procedures, has allowed the Orthopedist the ability for precise alignment and sparring of tissue. The question for us as clinicians is: Are we educationally ready to provide current and progressive rehabilitation for the rising joint replacement population? The joint replacement patient today is quite different than the traditional patient we all learned about in school. We learned all those precautions and restrictions with the ultimate goal being to rehabilitate in order for the patient to dress, groom, and perform self-care. Today the "Baby Boomer" joint replacement patient has a higher expectation out of their rehabilitation provider. Today's "Boomers" want to use their "new and bionic" prosthesis to get down on the floor and play with the grandkids, ski, and hike. Their desire to remain active has rehab implications for clinicians in all settings. Understanding modern technology and being able to confidently communicate that to the patient is extremely important in the total care of the patient.
This highly interactive seminar will provide the attendee the evidenced-based knowledge to answer those often on-the-spot questions by our patients such as "What should I not do?" or "When can I hike or play tennis again?" Also examined will be surgery from traditional to cutting edge, in addition to evidenced-based rehab and return to activity guidelines. This one of a kind seminar is a MUST for all clinicians who work with total joint patients.
