APEX Arthroscopic and Open Shoulder Course

Arthroscopic and Open Shoulder: When and How to Treat Shoulder Pathology has transitioned to a virtual format. This online course offering focuses on shoulder techniques – from arthroscopy to arthroplasty, from the fundamentals to the most advanced techniques. This multi-format program features online didactics completed at your own pace, enhanced with a previously recorded webinar with expert Q&A and breakout sessions, surgical skills demonstrations and procedure videos, pre-recorded lecture presentations and more!

Earn the CME credits you need by completing the pre- and post-test, to confirm you have walked away with the refined skills you need in arthroscopic and open shoulder surgery.

The agenda includes content such as:

  • Techniques for anterior and posterior instability
  • Cuff controversies such as risk factors for rotator cuff tearing and repair failure
  • What to accomplish when performing reverse total shoulder arthroplasty
  • When and how to treat clavicle fractures
  • When and how to plate, nail and reverse proximal humerus fractures
  • Panels on instability, complex cuff, arthroplasty and fracture cases
