These workshops are a hands on experience, including cadaveric work.


The purpose of the workshops are to provide a basic understanding of the Direct Anterior Approach including anatomy, patient selection, instruments and approaches. The workshops are a hands on experience, including cadaveric work, that will enable you to better understand the proper sequence of steps for acetabular and femoral preparation from a DAA perspective

Who should attend?

The course is intended for practicing consultant orthopaedic surgeons who would like to learn an off table direct anterior approach to hip arthroplasty.

What support is available after a course to reduce my learning curve?

Dr. Thornton-Bott is happy to fly to wherever you practise to proctor you through cases so you have support through the learning curve. This is a very successful and safe way of reducing the risk of complications using a new technique. Your hospital has support with education of your scrub staff to further assist in the introduction and use of a new technique for you.
