Level I will include a didactic lecture and lab demonstration of the First Puncture technique and insertion of the arthroscope into the posterior recess of the superior joint space; diagnostic arthrocentesis;
arthroscopic lysis and lavage under visualization; examination of the Seven-Points-of-Interest; entering the anterior recess in preparation for insertion of second puncture or deposition of targeted medication.
Level II includes a lecture and cadaveric demonstration of placing the Second Punture and insertion of an operative port; identification, explanation, and use of the full-range of 1.8mm arthroscopy instruments; introduction of mechanical and thermal instruments such as shavers, radio frequency ablation and coagulation devices, and a Holmium YAG solid-state laser.
Level III demonstrates the repositioning of the disc also known as discopexy. The didactic portions of the course will also include a lecture on arthroscopy complications. The course will conclude with a question-and-answer session conducted by the faculty.
