Description
This Pre-course will focus on enhancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in pediatric orthopaedics, minimizing our own biases, building diverse teams, crafting a welcoming, supportive environment, and increasing access to care for those individuals in non-majority populations, with the overall goal of improving outcomes for all pediatric patients with musculoskeletal conditions.

Description
Surgeons often change their practice through their career as they gain experience and based on new research.  We have enlisted a panel of pediatric hand surgeons to discuss “What I know now that I wish I knew then.” Our discussion will consist of topics ranging from trigger thumb release to radial dysplasia treatment with our panelists discussing changes in practice from when they started to today, confirmations or discontinuation of treatments, or changes in philosophy.
Time
7:50 AM - 9:40 AM
7:50 AM
This session will focus on intra-operative decision-making points during common pediatric and adolescent hip surgeries.  The discussion will focus on how to decide when to take the next step in order to optimize the outcome.
Time
7:50 AM - 12:00 PM
7:50 AM
Guided growth is a widely popular method of treating deformity in skeletally immature patients for its ease of application and low risk profile.  The aim of this session is to explore the current trends in guided growth and to illustrate when it works or fails to avoid osteotomy in complex lower extremity deformity.   Presentations and interactive case discussions will highlight the controversies and limitations of guided growth in pathologic bone and Blount’s disease.
Time
7:50 AM - 12:00 PM
7:50 AM
This session will be a mixture of scientific presentations and discussion on the orthopaedic care of patients with neuromuscular disorders.  A variety of topics will be presented, including surgical indications for common surgical interventions in CP and SDR and review of this year’s journal articles which will change clinical practice.
Time
7:50 AM - 12:00 PM
7:50 AM
Innovation drives what we can do to help our patients.  Innovation over recent years is staggering; magnetically controlled growing rods, tethering, and other technology have the potential to revolutionize patient care.  At the same time, long term data is lacking, and the surgeon must balance the ethical responsibility he or she has to the patient with the need to drive care forward.  The ethics of bringing new technology from bench to bedside will be discussed in detail.  From development, to learning from early cases to honest outcome evaluation, our panel of experts will tackle these and other ethical dilemmas involved in innovating.
Time
7:50 AM - 12:00 PM
7:50 AM
Complications and unexpected events happen to every surgeon. The goal of this section will be to discuss complications in pediatric sports medicine, preventative measures to avoid them, and pearls to manage them once they happen. Speakers will discuss intra-operative complications (graft complications in ACL surgery, fixation failure, etc.) and postoperative complications (infections, stiffness, DVT, etc.) and how to prevent and manage them.
Time
7:50 AM - 12:00 PM
7:50 AM
The Trauma Subspecialty session will consist of three different components of interest to pediatric orthopaedic surgeons involved in trauma care. There will be scientific paper presentations leading into an interactive discussion about the latest findings in trauma care. There will also be two didactic sessions. The first will discuss innovative approaches and lively debate regarding tough pediatric trauma problems involving the upper and lower extremities  (unstable SCFE, radial neck fractures, distal tibia fractures, and Monteggia injuries).  The second will be an all-star panel of trauma experts (two adult and two pediatric specialists) discussing “adult-like” trauma in the pediatric/adolescent patient population (lisfranc ORIF vs primary fusion, tibial plateau, distal humerus, calcaneus fractures, syndesmotic injury screws vs suture-button device).
Time
7:50 AM - 12:00 PM
7:50 AM
This year’s panelists come from across globe. They will debate the management of uncommon congenital malformations of the foot and ankle and share their pearls for treating the sequelae of severe trauma of the pediatric foot.
