The Annual Perspectives in Total Joint Arthroplasty Course was started in 1992 by David A. McQueen, MD, an orthopedic surgeon with an adult reconstructive private practice and continues to promote the highest standards of orthopaedic practice by educating practitioners, promoting research, and encouraging communication between opinion leaders and community based physicians. Sadly, Dr. McQueen passed away on February 25, 2013. We are honored to continue Dr. McQueen’s legacy through this year’s course, and we will continue to promote the highest standards of orthopaedic practice by educating practitioners, supporting research, and encouraging communication between opinion leaders and community-based physicians. Presentations at the David A. McQueen Memorial 21st Annual Perspectives in Total Joint Arthroplasty meeting will focus on the hip, providing new insights into the challenges of managing primary and revision total hip arthroplasty patients. The faculty will examine the latest research on implant designs, take on the controversy of surgical approaches for the total hip, and offer strategies for overcoming difficulties in revision procedures.
