Los Angeles Orthopedic Trauma Course: Hot Topics in Orthopedic Trauma — Oct. 22

Orthopedic trauma requires critical decision-making strategies for immediate care and surgical interventions. With more patients with complex injuries remaining at the admitting hospital, the responsibility for care rests with surgeons practicing at nontrauma hospitals. This has increased the need for surgeons who take emergency calls to be current with contemporary methods of fracture management. The conference will take place Saturday, Oct. 22, at the Sofitel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills. To register or for more information, click here.
