The Center Foundation announced its annual professional education conference — Knee’d to Know: Current and Emerging Trends in Surgery and Rehab of the Knee. The conference will take place at various locations in Bend on Friday, April 12 and Saturday, April 13, 2019. A combined effort between The Center Foundation, The Center Orthopedic and Neurosurgical Care and Research, and Therapeutic Associates, Inc., the conference is designed for health care professionals, including physical therapists, primary care physicians, chiropractors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and certified athletic trainers with an interest in orthopedics and sports medicine.
Attendees will gain evidence-based information on anatomy, surgical interventions, indications for rehabilitation, therapy options, outcomes and implications, as well as a review of pediatric knee conditions and treatment. In addition, this year’s conference will include an optional Dynamic Lower Extremity Workshop as well as an optional Cadaver Lab. Workshop participants will gain practical hands-on experience in a dynamic neuromuscular therapeutic exercise protocol as it relates to the treatment of acute and chronic knee injuries. Cadaver lab participants will receive an in-depth and hands-on experience illustrating anatomy, surgical procedures, and common pathologies and injuries of the knee.

I believe in minimally-invasive techniques that allow patients to return to normal activity as quickly as possible.”
