This past weekend, Dr. Kevin Bonner had the honor of serving as the Co-Chair of “The Orthopedic Summit: Evolving Techniques” (OSET). OSET has become one of the most popular CME courses for orthopedic surgeons. It is typically held annually in Las Vegas, but due to the pandemic, it was held virtually this year. Dr. Bonner was instrumental in the transition of this large in-person meeting to a virtual meeting.
During “normal” (pre-COVID-19) times, patients often wait far too long to consider a more permanent, surgical solutionto their severe and/or persistent joint or back pain. Conservative non-surgical treatments, including creams, exercise, physical therapy and injections will provide some relief, but often not enough or long-lasting. Patients typically seek orthopedic or spine surgery when they can no longer tolerate or function with their level of pain.
A question we often get from patient’s after their total knee replacement is “when can I drive?”
Factors that affect a person’s ability to drive after total joint replacement include type of joint replacement, surgery on left vs. right side, strength to react in an emergency, narcotic use, various comorbidities, and vehicle type.
This past weekend, Dr. Kevin Bonner served as the Co-Chairman for the Arthroscopy Association of North America (AANA) Shoulder/Knee Course. The course was scheduled to be held in Chicago, IL, but was changed to a virtual course due to COVID-19.
