Hansjorg Wyss Geriatric Fracture Symposium (RP2306B)

Dallas, TX US
June 2, 2023 to June 3, 2023

Event Banner

Join us this June in Dallas, Texas, at the inaugural UT Southwestern Hansjörg Wyss Geriatric Fracture Symposium. As the population continues to age, insufficiency (osteoporotic) fractures are on the rise. These frail, medically complex patients are often challenging to care for and require a strong co-management team for the optimal results. In this one and one-half day symposium, we will cover comprehensive care of the geriatric patient including type of injury, surgical management and various perspectives from orthopaedic surgery, anesthesia, geriatric medicine, bone mineral metabolism and more. Attendees will gain insight through live lectures and interactive Q&A with the experts on how to provide the best care for a complex patient demographic and achieve the best possible outcomes for these patients. Physicians, clinicians and residents who choose to attend will learn how to optimally manage this niche patient population and apply learnings from this course at their own institutions and initiate best practice strategies.
