Orthopedics training: learning about hip arthroplasty from Spain to Colombia

Training is essential in Orthopedics and Traumatology. The health and improvement of patient mobility is at stake, and in addition, the incorporation of new products creates the need to be continuously updated to be able to implant them correctly.

Surgival has always considered that the correct training of surgeons and their technical team is essential to ensure the success of its products and the patient’s surgery.

Last week the company organized a training session with the objective that the technical team of its client from Colombia be trained in the latest product developments. Specifically, the surgical specialties that were reviewed were:

  • Partial hip arthroplasty
  • Total hip arthroplasty cemented
  • Total non-cemented hip arthroplasty

The instrumentalists had the opportunity to resolve all their doubts, tell their experiences in the operating room and know first hand the correct way to implement a hip surgery with various Surgival products. The products used for this training were:

  • KAREY ™ cementless stem
  • SELF-LOCKING cemented and cementless stem
  • BIPOLAR head
  • MULLER cemented cup
  •  S.H.Y.® cementless, press-fit cup

The company wants to thank the students for their involvement and commitment.

New online conferences are already being prepared for next year. Anyone from the Orthopedics an Traumatology sector can contact the commercial department of Surgival and organize a training session in the specialty they need (knee, hip, traumatology, etc).
