Post-operative Management following Common Orthopaedic Knee Surgeries: Evidence based, Clinically Designed Rehabilitation

Post-operative Management following Common Orthopaedic Knee Surgeries

Register Online Now: Launceston 

This workshop will focus on isolated and combined ligamentous reconstruction, meniscal surgery, articular cartilage surgery, surgery for uni and tricompartmental osteoarthritis, and surgical options for tibio-femoral or patella-femoral mal-alignment. 

Following workshop completion, you will have a better understanding of pertinent knee anatomy, biomechanics and relevance to optimal knee function, injury mechanism, clinical assessment of knee injury and the wide array of orthopaedic knee surgeries employed to address these common pathological conditions.  

Post-operative management for these surgeries will be covered, including initial assessment measures and progressive exercise prescription, contraindications to exercise throughout the rehabilitative process, potential complications that can arise (and efforts that can be employed to minimise such complications), the use of other functional devices employed post-surgery specific to the different knee surgeries (ie, crutches, bracing etc.) and the post-operative clinical and radiological assessment of these surgeries.
