Universal Hip Workshop
October 5 - October 6
Developed in cooperation with experienced industry-leading surgeons, this two-day workshop consists of a comprehensive online educational component, supplemental classroom instruction, and extensive hands-on laboratory experience. This multi-faceted approach to education is designed to offer participants the necessary resources and support to sufficiently familiarize themselves with the procedure, and reliably offer an advanced orthopedic service to their clientele. Participants will learn proper technique for use of the Universal Hip system, focusing on preoperative planning, surgical technique, and clinical follow-up, with opportunity to use the instruments to gain an understanding of the surgical objectives.
In order to maximize the hands-on learning of laboratory exercises, the BioMedtrix Online Portal was developed to provide educational reference material and resources. Consisting of reading assignments, visual aids and videos, self-assessment activities, and moderated discussion forums, BioMedtrix online courses are designed to enhance a participating surgeon’s understanding of the material and reinforce the learning process. Completion of the online material is required for surgeons to be prepared to participate in the hands-on laboratory exercises. The online educational material is a vital component of the Universal Hip workshop, with additional course development planned for the Micro & Nano Hip, I-Loc IM Fixator, and TPLO Curve systems.
Surgeons who have completed a BioMedtrix workshop may choose to participate in the Product Mentorship Program. This program incurs additional costs and is designed to support new total joint replacement surgeons as they progress beyond attendance at a total joint replacement workshop, towards performing clinical total joint replacement procedures. Surgeons who complete this program will have demonstrated an understanding of the concepts necessary for successful clinical results. The program offers three potential pathways to practice the procedure, gain confidence, and validate a surgeon’s comprehension of the concepts required for successful clinical results. One of the following three pathways may be selected: Cadaver Implantation, Surgeon Assist Training, or Mentor Training. Completion of the Mentorship Program is a required process prior to purchasing implants from BioMedtrix for total joint systems. The Product Mentorship Program is offered for the Universal Hip and Micro & Nano Hip systems.
