Course Recording: Surgical Skills Masters Course

From Ligament Insufficiency to Cartilage / Meniscus Pathologies and Arthritis

Presented by


AOSSM and ISAKOS provide a global perspective on osteotomies. This masters-level course recording is designed for surgeons who have experience with the procedure and are looking for a greater understanding of lower limb alignment and how it may be altered to improve patient function. The course will demystify the technique of realignment osteotomy, providing attendees with a clear rationale and practical treatment algorithm to address a variety of knee conditions from cartilage and meniscal injury to ligament deficiency to osteoarthritis.

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the indications and surgical techniques for realignment osteotomy of the knee, including proximal tibia, distal femur and patellofemoral.
  • Describe the indications and surgical techniques for biplanar, coronal, and sagittal plane osteotomies to treat ligament instability (e.g., ACL, PCL, MCL, posterolateral corner).
  • Describe the pre-operative planning of deformity correction pertaining to the knee.

Live Lab Learning

Get ready for hands-on practice with advanced knee osteotomies techniques in the state-of-the-art OLC Education & Conference Center lab. Each attendee will have a cadaver allowing for femoral and tibial procedures. Plus, attendees will have access to sawbones in which they can perform the same procedures. The attendee will have a choice of tibial or femoral procedures based on what they are least comfortable/aware of. Expert faculty will assist with stepping through the procedures for optimal learning.

Surgical skills that you will be able to practice include:

  • Distal femoral osteotomy (closing or open wedge)
  • De-rotation distal femoral osteotomy
  • Proximal tibial osteotomy
  • Anterior closing wedge proximal tibial osteotomy with a TTO
