Please join us for the 8th Annual Direct Anterior Approach Hip Course, October 17 - 19, 2019, in Houston, Texas, at the JW Marriott Houston.

The anterior approach for total hip replacement is an important surgical alternative to the traditional hip replacement protocol: The approach is tissue-sparing and results in less pain, faster patient recovery, and improved mobility related to the lesser trauma provided by the procedure. The 8th Annual Direct Anterior Approach Hip Course will offer a thorough education on the surgical and patient processes associated with the anterior hip approach, from patient selection through patient recovery and follow-up.

This course is intended for surgeons already using this procedure and are interested in honing their skills. It will be taught by some of the most well-regarded orthopaedic surgeons practicing today. With didactic presentations, video vignettes, and case-based panel discussions, this exciting program will also feature live surgeries and 3+ hours of hands-on cadaver workshops to enhance the educational environment.

We hope to see you for this unique educational experience!
