Prior to performing surgery, you can undertake a preoperative educational module reinforcing key surgical anatomy and providing a basic foundation for essential pre- and postoperative procedural knowledge. During the surgical simulation, you will be learning how to prepare an acetabulum and femur for implantation of an acetabular cup and liner, and femoral stem implant.
You will resect and remove the femoral head. The acetabulum will be prepared with an Acetabular Reamer, ready for the cup and liner to be implanted. You will then use a combination of Box Osteotome, Canal Finder and a series of Femoral Broaches to prepare the femoral medullary canal. Once the canal has been prepared at the correct angles and depth, you will then complete the implantation.
Before each key surgical objective, knowledge of key anatomy and procedural awareness are assessed.
