Dear Registrants:

On behalf of Hennepin Healthcare, the Organizing Committee welcomes you to the 48th Annual Orthopaedic and Trauma Seminar—the longest running orthopaedic seminar in the nation, with registrants from 28 states and Mexico.

The course is designed to provide participants an opportunity to interact directly with the proponents and practitioners of new research, and to increase their knowledge of different management approaches and surgical techniques related to orthopaedic surgery. There will be opportunity to discuss and debate areas of clinical controversy, experiences, and network with others. The skills labs will provide participants with hands-on experience to learn new techniques in orthopaedic surgery. This year the lecture track is devoted specifically to the needs of the Advanced Practice Provider, and we hope you find value in this as well.

Multiple companies dedicated to patient care have helped make the 2018 Seminar possible through their purchase of exhibit space. The talks, discussions, and videotapes are planned to make you aware of “cutting edge” methods of care for the orthopaedic patient, while the skills labs are designed to allow hands-on experience with these methods.

The Organizing Committee would like to acknowledge the support, suggestions, and behind-the-scenes activities of Excelen Center for Bone & Joint and the Hennepin Health orthopaedic administrative staff. Their assistance with this seminar is invaluable.

We are happy to be your hosts for the 2018 seminar and look forward to seeing you again next year.

On behalf of the Course Committee, please enjoy this year’s course.
