Peer-reviewed, high-quality, non-biased video presentations feature topics from anatomy and arthroscopy to demonstrations of cutting-edge techniques. 10 subspecialties are represented and videos from renowned experts and innovators around the globe are provided in this Video Theater in the Exhibition Hall.

Many of the orthopaedic surgeons who participate in the peer review process are pioneers in their field. Videos are reviewed by topic experts, providing you with valuable information, as well as pearls and pitfalls you need to improve patient outcomes.

Each video includes indications, pre- and post-operative images, references, and many include outcomes information. The videos provide you with perspective from the surgeon’s point-of-view, and from the surgeon’s side of the table.
