Date: October 12, 2016
Time: 6:00 PM PT / 7:00 PM MT / 8:00 PM CT / 9:00 PM ET
Deadline to register: October 12 at 8:00 PM ET
Presented by: Wyndell H. Merritt, MD, FACS
Format: 45 minutes presentation, 15 minutes Q&A
This webinar will review the biomechanical principles of relative motion and its use and application to a variety of different diagnoses including sagittal band repair, boutonniere and flexor tendons, and in concert with “wide awake surgery.”
At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:
1. Identify the appropriate use and design of relative motion orthoses.
2. Identify the anatomical and biomechanical rationale for application of the relative motion protocol.
3. Relate the real patient case studies to the application of the protocol.
4. Recognize the value of “wide awake surgery” to various diagnoses.
Attendees earn 1 continuing education hour/0.1 CEU for this webinar.
Below is the preliminary handout for this webinar. The final handout will be distributed to all webinar registrants prior to the live event.
