Led by an esteemed faculty, this course will feature current clinical algorithms, backed by peer-reviewed publications and showcase cutting-edge shoulder surgical techniques to optimize patient outcomes.

Tailor the course to your objectives by choosing which shoulder procedures you want to focus your lab time on. Hands-on surgical procedures to choose from include:

  • Diagnostic scope
  • Labral reconstruction
  • HAGL, rHAGL repairs
  • Bone loss instability: Remplissage, AAGR
  • Biceps tenodesis
  • Rotator cuff repair
