"I've always enjoyed OLC courses, and found them to be an amazing educational experience which combines academic and practical applications.  I believe these settings are ideal for complex, controversial, and developing technologies and joint preservation technologies can certainly be included in that list.  The conversational and debate formats mixed with lab exposure with some of the most gifted and well-read surgeons in the specialty provide unparalleled education not just for attendees, but for instructors."
