A choice of 32 stations
With 32 viewing stations, this year’s Multimedia Education Center gives visitors front row seats for the very best in orthopaedic education. The 2008 award-winning instructional videos are featured at Stations 1-4. Stations 5-27 include new video and multimedia programs, grouped by anatomic area—adult reconstruction/hip (5-10); adult reconstruction/knee (11-16); ankle (17); shoulder/elbow (18-21); sports medicine/arthroscopy (22-26); and pediatrics (27). Stations 28-32 feature “encore presentations” of award-winning and other popular programs from 2007.

Award-winning multimedia
The four award-winning DVD programs were selected by the Multimedia Education Center Subcommittee, chaired by Gene R. Barrett, MD. The winning programs are chosen for their high production values, technical quality, educational merit, and clinical relevance.

This year’s outstanding programs are: Anatomy of the Knee by Stephen L. Brown, MD, Patrick M. Connor, MD, Donald F. D’Alessandro, MD, and James E. Fleischli, MD; Custom Fit Total Knee Arthroplasty with Custom Fit Femoral and Tibial Cutting Guides by Stephen M. Howell, MD; Pectoralis Major Transfer for Irreparable Rotator Cuff Tears by Sumant G. Krishnan, MD, and Kenneth C. Lin, MD; and Surgical Dislocation and Debridement for Femoro-Acetabular Impingement by Christopher L. Peters, MD, and Jill A. Erickson, PA-C.

“Video remains one of orthopaedic education’s most helpful and widely used instructional tools,” according to Dr. Barrett. “The award-winning video programs and selections that are showcased each year in Multimedia Education Center illustrate our members’ commitment to lifelong learning. We are deeply indebted to our program authors for their voluntary contributions, without which the Multimedia Education Center would not be possible.”
