Program Overview

The Musculoskeletal Ultrasound + Regenerative Medicine for the Hip: A Cadaveric Hands-On Injection Workshop program offers a comprehensive blend of didactic lectures, live demonstrations, and practical hands-on sessions aimed at advancing participants’ proficiency in musculoskeletal ultrasound and regenerative medicine techniques for the hip joint. The program begins with an in-depth exploration of hip anatomy and ultrasound imaging principles, followed by lectures on various hip pathologies and their management strategies. Participants then engage in live demonstrations where expert instructors showcase ultrasound-guided injection techniques and regenerative medicine procedures using cadaveric specimens. The core of the program lies in hands-on sessions, providing attendees with the opportunity to practice ultrasound-guided injections and regenerative therapies under the guidance of experienced instructors. Throughout the workshop, emphasis is placed on refining participants’ skills, fostering a deeper understanding of hip pathology, and enabling them to apply these techniques effectively in clinical practice. By the end of the program, attendees emerge equipped with the knowledge and practical experience.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the anatomical structures of the hip joint and surrounding soft tissues relevant to musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging and injection techniques.
  • Develop proficiency in performing musculoskeletal ultrasound scans of the hip, including proper probe positioning, image optimization and identification of normal and pathological anatomy.
  • Learn various ultrasound-guided injection approaches for the hip joint, including intra-articular, periarticular and soft tissue injections.
  • Gain competency in ultrasound-guided needle placement and trajectory for accurate delivery of therapeutic agents to target sites within the hip joint and surrounding structures.
  • Explore the principles and techniques of regenerative medicine for the hip, including the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell injections for tissue repair and regeneration.
  • Understand the indications, contraindications and potential complications associated with ultrasound-guided injections and regenerative therapies for the hip.
  • Develop the skills to integrate musculoskeletal ultrasound imaging and regenerative medicine techniques into clinical practice for the diagnosis and treatment of hip-related musculoskeletal disorders.
  • Enhance interdisciplinary communication and collaboration by effectively communicating ultrasound findings and treatment plans with other healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with hip pathology.
  • Utilize hands-on practice with cadaveric specimens to reinforce learning objectives and enhance procedural skills in a controlled and anatomically accurate environment.
  • Apply the knowledge and skills acquired during the workshop to improve patient outcomes, optimize treatment strategies, and provide evidence-based care for individuals with hip-related musculoskeletal conditions.
