Project Description

myAO knowledge update on Arthroscopy and surgical sports medecine
Orthopedic injuries are common among athletes because of wear and tear, falls, and other accidents. Injuries include ACL and other ligament tears, meniscus tears, fractures, strains, torn tendons, and even joint dislocations. Preventing injuries is the best course of action, but sometimes they cannot be avoided. Orthopedic surgeons can help treat sports injuries with rehabilitation, bracing, and surgery (traditional open surgery and arthroscopy).

The surgical treatment of sports injuries and other soft-tissue conditions around the joints are closely related to classical orthopedic and trauma surgery, however, many innovative techniques for prevention, repair, and reconstruction require specific specialization to achieve excellence in patient outcomes.
The AO responded to the significant global need for unbiased education in this field by creating AO Sports at the AO Davos Courses 2021
