2023 International Masters Anterior Course

Houston, Texas



1709 Dryden Rd, Houston, TX 77030


This course is designed to provide an intensive 3-day education on surgical techniques, including modifications and extensions, for primary and revision anterior total hip arthroplasty. Through a combination of didactic presentations, interactive case-based panel discussions, and live surgical demonstrations, the internationally renowned faculty will share their expertise in the anterior approach as they address current trends in:

Management of surgical complications
Prevention of periprosthetic infections
Hip preservation with the anterior approach
Diagnosis and treatment of complex cases
Development of outpatient total joint programs
Enhanced recovery protocols
Advanced surgical technologies
Novel approaches to pain management
Attendees will hear from surgical masters from around the world who are utilizing alternative approaches to hip arthroplasty in a “fireside chat,” participate in “Stump the Faculty” case-based panel discussions, and view surgical broadcasts that will showcase the latest advancements in the direct anterior hip approach.

A 3-hour bioskills lab at the Houston Methodist Institute for Technology, Innovation & Education will feature faculty-led surgical technique demonstrations and hands-on instruction, providing an opportunity for attendees to practice the skills they’ve learned during the course.
