NEW ORLEANS MARRIOTT* NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA
 

This course will highlight the fundamental anatomical knowledge with which both therapists and surgeons alike should be familiar. In addition to common conditions treated in the upper extremity, topics which are infrequently seen in educational forums but are clinically common, including benign hand and wrist tumors, emergency conditions, such as compartment syndromes, ulnar sided wrist pain and common conditions involving the shoulder and elbow will be covered during this program by experts in their respective fields.

The program will offer concurrent programming on Friday and Saturday morning giving attendees the choice of which topic best meets their needs.

Learning Objectives

  • Demonstrate mastery in the anatomical knowledge of common conditions from the fingertip to the shoulder.
  • Demonstrate mastery of current concepts for diagnosis and treatment of tendon and nerve injuries in the upper extremity.
  • Demonstrate an ability to diagnose and initiate treatment for ulnar sided wrist pain.
  • Demonstrate an ability to diagnosis and treat conditions of the wrist and forearm.
