A Symposium on the Hip: Identifying Issues, Care, Recovery, Prevention and Surgical Outcomes

Location: Kingbridge Conference Centre & Institute
12750 Jane St, King City, Ontario

Date: Saturday, April 14, 2018

The OATA is very please to be working with OSSUR — the presenting sponsor to the 2018 HIP SUMMIT — and with Dr. Olufemi Ayeni, a leading orthopaedic surgeon who has mastered the new Minimally Invasive Anterior Total Hip Joint Replacement, along with a multi-disciplinary team of rehab professionals including ATs, PTs and Osteopathic Manual Practitioners.

The anterior approach is an approach to the front of the hip joint as opposed to a lateral (side) approach to the hip or posterior (back) approach. Video footage from a hip replacement using the new technique will be shared with insights into best practices to regain full rotation and hip function.
