Mid-Term Results of the Taperloc Complete Microplasty Femoral Stem | Adolph Lombardi, MD
The use of short femoral components in primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) represents an attractive option.  Advocates tout bone preservation and ease of use in less invasive surgical approaches.

  • Identify the advantages of the short stem concept in total hip arthroplasty, and distinguish the different trends in current short stem designs.
  • Evaluate the published results of the Taperloc Complete Microplasty stem in total hip arthroplasty and those of its antecedents.

The Pursuit of Perfection in Total Knee Arthroplasty | Adolph Lombardi, MD
Total knee arthroplasty has been an enormously successful procedure for several decades, but continues to evolve in pursuit of greater perfection. Surgeons are met with high expectation, internet savvy patients who want the best possible outcomes on a consistent basis. Instrumentation and technique have evolved from simple, sometimes bulky, manual tools to less invasive approaches and more streamlined, sophisticated, calibrated guides for accurate bone cuts and alignment to smart tools, dynamic intraoperative sensors for better soft tissue balancing, patient-specific guides, computer navigation, and robotics.

  • Articulate the evolution of technology used to perform total knee arthroplasty from early simple manual instruments to more sophisticated instruments used with less invasive approaches to modern smart tools, sensors, guides, and navigation.
  • Evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of newer technologies for improving ligamentous balancing and component alignment in total knee arthroplasty.
  • Evaluate all technology based on how it can make you a better surgeon, helping you deliver the best operation and most optimal care in the most efficient manner.

Can You Treat 20 to 50% of Primary Knee Patients with Partials? | Adolph Lombardi, MD
Enhanced appreciation of normal knee kinematics and the inability to replicate these in the replaced total knee have led to increased enthusiasm for partial knee arthroplasty.

Advances in Hip and Knee Arthroplasty: What’s New in the United States? | Adolph Lombardi, MD
Growing numbers of patients undergo arthroplasty safely with same day discharge. In determining which patients are candidates for outpatient arthroplasty, selection has been scrutinized, including modifiable risk factors for complications that can be optimized preoperatively to ensure a positive outcome.

  • Develop and implement an outpatient arthroplasty program at your institution, including protocols to medically optimize all patients to undergo arthroplasty surgery.
  • Evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of new technologies to identify those that could enhance your delivery of patient care and improve outcomes and survival.
  • Articulate the published results and advantages of newer devices including dual mobility articulations in total hip arthroplasty and ultra-congruent bearings in total knee arthroplasty.
