Focus on Revision Knees at the J&J Institute Asia-Pac Symposium
Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) is widely recognized as one of the most common and successful surgeries, yet for some patients a revision procedure will be required. Revision knee surgeries are regarded as complex and can present the operating surgeon with numerous technical challenges.
To improve outcomes for these patients, the Johnson & Johnson Institute welcomed more than 100 orthopaedic surgeons from across Asia Pacific to the Masters Revision Knee Symposium in Sydney, Australia. Led by a faculty of 20 international experts, the symposium highlighted new technologies and techniques to advance care before, during and after surgery.
“It is remarkable that a company is willing to invest in education and I think the success of the Symposium is reflected in the attendance that we’ve seen here.” David Dalury, M.D., Clinical Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at University of Maryland Medicine, Associate Professor at Johnson Hopkins University, Chief of Orthopaedics at University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center.
The comprehensive two-day program combined didactic lectures, case studies and panel discussions, with the opportunity to collaborate and learn from colleagues across the Asia-Pack region.
“Patients of all ages want to stay active longer and that means technology and surgical outcomes need to continuously improve to deliver against patient expectations,” said David Carroll, Manager, Knee & Hip Revision, DePuy Synthes. “The Johnson & Johnson Institute is committed to providing innovative education and training programs to deliver clinically-proven procedural solutions that advance care.”
