Although the sports medicine physician treats many things, including concussions, muscle cramps, sprains, and bone fractures, the focus of the Annual ISK Course is on repair of damage done to ligament and joints of the hip and knee. These types of injuries often occur over time due to overuse, causing repeated small fractures and tears that remain unresolved when the patient returns to physical activity.
ISK has excelled in developing optimal surgical procedures tailored to the individual patient. The ISK Course covers cutting edge methods of diagnosis and repair of tears to the meniscus of the knee, the anterior, posterior, medial, and lateral ligaments, the patella, and damage to cartilage. The latest methods and technological advances involved in total knee and hip replacement are standard elements of the program, as well as problematic hips and knees encountered frequently in athletic or overuse patients. The ISK program offers great depth into diagnosis and treatment protocols for younger athletic patients in terms of surgical techniques, implant choices, arthroscopic options, and dealing with complications and bone loss. The role ISK plays in establishing perioperative protocols for blood management, infection, wound closure, and pain management is pivotal in modern orthopaedic surgery, and is supportive of governmental and healthcare system efforts to provide optimal patient care while reducing overall cost.
Clinical studies, surgeon feedback, retrospective analysis, and surgeon-to-surgeon interaction are all part of a very active, fast moving assessment of the best implant possibilities and surgical options at any given moment. The ISK Course represents an opportunity to effectively access the state of the art for implant use and related surgical procedures, especially as they relate to the athlete and the active older patient.

The Spring Hip and Knee Course will provide surgeons with 2 full days of in-depth and relevant reconstructive surgery information in engaging formats. The program, chaired by Walter B. Beaver Jr., MD and Thomas K. Fehring, MD of the OrthoCarolina Hip & Knee Center will feature up to 20 ICJR faculty-led CME sessions.
This is a patient-centered conference for orthopaedic reconstructive surgeons, physician assistants (PA) and orthopaedic nurses. Over the course of 2 days, expert faculty will guide orthopaedic surgeons, PAs and nurses through in-depth, pivotal research and effective practices in hip and knee joint reconstruction.

The Master's Series: Anterior Hip Course represents an ongoing effort on the part of the ICJR faculty to combine interactive participation and the latest supportive knowledge related to the most significant orthopaedic surgical procedures practiced today. One such procedure, the anterior approach for total hip replacement, is an important surgical alternative to the traditional hip replacement protocol; the approach is tissue-sparing, results in less pain, faster patient recovery, and improved mobility related to the lesser trauma provided by the procedure. A successful anterior approach for total hip replacement requires surgeon-to-surgeon training and a solid understanding of associated perioperative procedures, implant choices, different OR roles, and patient continuum of care.
The Master's Series: Anterior Hip Course provides a thorough education on the surgical and patient processes associated with the anterior hip approach, from patient selection through patient recovery and follow up. The course is intended for surgeons already employing this procedure and interested in honing their skills and is taught by some of the most regarded US orthopaedic surgeons practicing today.
In conjunction with a live surgery, a cadaver lab, and detailed lectures on all aspects of the anterior approach hip replacement procedure, The Master's Series: Anterior Hip Course will also provide a rich education and discussion on directly related topics such as computer aided navigation, pain and infection management, implant selection and implantation, as well as broader current topics including healthcare and joint registries.

In collaboration with Dr. Richard Friedman, ICJR Education Board member, Clinical Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Medical University of South Carolina, Medical Director of Charleston Orthopaedic Associates, Adjunct Professor of Bioengineering at Clemson University and Chairman of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Roper Hospital in Charleston, South Carolina, the ICJR platform is being used to introduce ICJR's First Annual Shoulder Course. This program is intended as the premier educational resource in the diagnosis, repair selection, repair execution, and perioperative management of the shoulder patient.
The ICJR Shoulder Course represents one of the most important and timely educational opportunities available to orthopaedic surgeons worldwide. Like all ICJR programs, the course aims to bridge the gaps that exist between evidence based results, practical surgical knowledge, and the current practice considerations faced by the ORS. The educational structure of ICJR has been fashioned around how the orthopaedic surgeon chooses to learn, while meeting the needs of the healthcare system and the satisfaction of orthopaedic patients.
