Over the last two weekends in August, Baltimore became the epicenter for some of the world’s best experts in their field ... And we aren’t just talking about race car drivers competing in the Grand Prix of Baltimore.
As the streets of Baltimore were filled with high-performance Indy cars, the hallways and conference rooms of the nearby Four Seasons Hotel were filled with some of the world’s most skilled hip, knee and limb lengthening surgeons.
The course schedule kicked off on August 23 with the Hip and Knee Course. Surgeons came together to participate in lectures, discussions and workshops on advancements in hip and knee surgery. The course was led by the doctors from the Center for Joint Preservation and Replacement.
The following Labor Day weekend marked the always eagerly anticipated Baltimore Limb Deformity Course hosted by hosted by the International Center for Limb Lengthening.
Surgeons and other specialists from 35 countries gathered to learn about advanced limb lengthening and deformity correction concepts and participate in hands-on labs that at times resembled a mechanic’s garage.
Additional sessions were offered that helped attendees learn surgical techniques in an anatomy lab and about the Ponseti Method to treat clubfoot.
As always, both courses were also an opportunity for the experts to renew old acquaintances and establish valuable new contacts.
The Rubin Institute is already looking forward to what has become a late summer tradition.
