Date: Fri, Oct 20th, 2017
Time: 7:00 am - 2:30 pm
Location: Lang Auditorium

Statement of Need:
Acute and overuse tendon injuries are a common reason for orthopedic and primary care consultations. These can arise from multiple factors and can present in varying degrees of severity. The 7th Annual Orthopedic Symposium at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens is an educational event that will focus on the assessment and management of tendinopathy.This symposium will be beneficial for health care providers wishing to improve their knowledge and competence in the care of tendon-related conditions and injuries. It will provide up-to-date information on operative and non-operative treatment options for both chronic and acute, overuse and traumatic tendon pathology. It will also provide overview of concepts of rehabilitation, supplement and nutritional adjuncts, and injection therapy, with regard to their roles in managing and rehabilitating tendon injuries. This symposium will provide time for an interactive question and answer period for each section.
It will also include a hands-on seminar for ultrasound-guided evaluation of commonly seen orthopedic pathology near such joints as the knee, shoulder, hip, elbow and ankle.
