Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Resurfacing hip arthroplasty represents a new, alternative technology to standard total hip arthroplasty. We examined the perceptions about resurfacing after the Second Annual United States Comprehensive Course on Total Hip Resurfacing Arthroplasty, which was a multi-company sponsored educational event to advance general knowledge, basic science, and surgical skills relevant to this field. The course led to a substantial increase in knowledge concerning resurfacing as evaluated from pre- and post-tests. The perceptions concerning indications, patient selection, and beliefs of the course attendees are reported.
