The current Concepts Institute is an independent corporate entity whose purpose is to provide continuing medical education for members of the orthopaedic health care profession inclusive of; surgeons, residents, nurses, and manufacturers. This meeting will focus on both primary and revision outcomes, surgical approaches, new materials, and design as well as address problems of fixation, bone deficiency, instability, trauma, and infection for hip and knee replacement. An assemblage of contemporary thought leaders will probe the boundaries of these problems and offer solutions for joint pathologies where arthroplasty is indicated. Plenary commentary, didactic clinical reports, technique videos, debate, and case challenges define the formats of presentation, which provide an optimal learning opportunity for orthopaedic surgeons and other allied professionals involved in joint reconstruction.

Surgical Robotic Technology - How Far and How Fast

With technology exploding in surgical-assisted devices, we have witnessed sophisticated interventions that have expanded from applications covering image guidance, to minimal invasive, to autonomous interaction. In fact, robotic assisted systems have now been approved by the FDA to support surgeons in procedures such as cutting, suturing, and holding tissue. As the surgeon community progressively accepts the transition of their skills the hospital buyers are finding innovative “mantras” from which to establish market dominance. Meanwhile the top end costs of these systems now rival some of the most expensive equipment bought by hospitals. This panel will discuss the cost/benefit ratio of this technology and how it is being positioned within an ever tightening healthcare budget, further addressing barriers to acceptance to this technology, and finally where the future lies as we springboard into a digital operating room.
