By Lisa Maxey, PT & Jim Ferguson, PT, ATC

These courses are offered in cooperation with Elsevier Health and utilize the hardback textbook, “Rehabilitation for the Postsurgical Orthopedic Patient, 3rd Edition", c2013 by Lisa Maxey & Jim Magnusson. Replacing 2 of our most popular courses from the 2nd Edition, this new edition provides current, evidence-based guidelines to designing effective rehabilitation strategies. Coverage of each condition includes an overview of the orthopedic patient’s entire course of treatment from pre- to post-surgery. For each phase of rehabilitation, this book describes the postoperative timeline, the goals, potential complications and precautions, and appropriate therapeutic procedures.

These courses are essential to both inpatient and outpatient physical and occupational therapists, physical and occupational therapy assistants and athletic trainers who deal with postsurgical orthopedic cases!

Module 1: covers shoulder acromioplasty, anterior capsular reconstruction, rotator cuff repair and rehabilitation, and superior labral anterior/posterior repair.

Module 2: covers total shoulder arthroplasty, extensor brevis release & lateral epicondylectomy, reconstruction of the ulnar collateral ligament with ulnar nerve transposition and platelet rich plasma therapy.

Module 3: covers primary flexor tendon repair in the digit, carpal tunnel release, transitioning the throwing athlete back to the field, and anterior cervical discectomy and fusion.

Module 4: covers posterior lumbar arthroscopic discectomy, lumbar spine fusion and lumbar spine disc replacement.

Module 5: covers total hip arthroplasty, hip arthroscopy, hip ORIF, ACL reconstruction and arthroscopic lateral retinaculum release.

Module 6: covers meniscectomy and meniscal repair, autologous chondrocyte implantation, ORIF of the patella, total knee arthroplasty and lateral ligament repair of the ankle.

Module 7: covers ORIF of the ankle, ankle arthroscopy, achilles tendon repair and bunionectomies.
