Tips from the Experts on Primary and Revision Joint Replacement

    Faculty from ICJR’s Winter Hip & Knee Course offer their top tips, tricks, and pearls for improving technique in primary and revision total knee and total hip arthroplasty.

    One of the top features for attendees at meetings sponsored by ICJR is the opportunity to engage with the expert faculty and get answers to their questions about technical aspects of joint replacement procedures to help improve their surgical technique.

    Because not everyone can attend an ICJR meeting, we decided to ask 4 faculty members at the 8th Annual Winter Hip & Knee Course to give us their top tips for primary and revision total joint procedures.

    We start with James A. Browne, MD, from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, who discusses primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA).
