5th Annual Modern Trends in Joint Replacement (MTJR)

September 19 – 21, 2013
Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort
44600 Indian Wells Lane
Indian Wells (Palm Springs), California

The International Congress for Joint Reconstruction (ICJR) is looking forward to another great Modern Trends in Joint Replacement (MTJR) Course this year.

In its fifth year, the MTJR course continues to promote the highest standards of orthopedic practice by educating practitioners, promoting research, and encouraging communication between opinion leaders and community based surgeons.

This year under the direction of the expert MTJR faculty, attendees will have the opportunity for hands-on experience honing their skills in hip and knee arthroplasty with the MTJR cadaver labs. These labs will take place the afternoons of Thursday, September 19, and Friday, September 20.

  • Thursday will feature two 90-minute knee cadaver labs: one on varus knee, and the other on custom knees and cutting blocks.
  • Friday will feature two 90-minute hip cadaver labs: one on new technologies in primary hip replacement, and the other on revision hip replacement.

We look forward to seeing you in September for another great MTJR event!

14th BIOLOX Joint Replacement Symposium

Bearing Surface Options in Total Joint Replacement: The Experts Provide the Evidence

May 19 – 20, 2012
The ARIA at CityCenter
Las Vegas, Nevada

This educational Symposium will provide a conduit to bring together the latest research studies, and the most up to date clinical results in the field of advanced bearings for Total Joint Replacement.


  • Basic Science & Wear Assessment
  • Bearing Surface Options: THA & TKA
  • Failures of TJA
  • Bearing Surface Problems: Challenge the Experts
  • Patient Activity & Bearing Surfaces
  • Clinical Outcomes

The event will focus on presenting the clinical results of existing technology in total joint replacement techniques used around the world, and will present the audience with promising new technologies currently being developed.

13th BIOLOX® Symposium in Edinburgh, Scotland

This Symposium will provide all participants with the most current knowledge available on the use of Bioceramics and Alternative Bearings in Contemporary Total Joint Replacement. Previous International BIOLOX® Symposiums have established a tradition of offering excellent opportunities for effective communication and exchange of ideas between engineers, scientists and surgeons. The scope of the Symposiums has been expanded over the years and now include practical applications of ceramics and other alternative bearing materials in both laboratory and clinical settings. The Symposium pays tribute to the excellent acceptance of ceramic technology by the Orthopaedic Surgical Community.

FARM Orthopedics Founder and CEO Richard Warner has been invited to speak. FARM Board of Directors B. Sonny Bal, MD, Rocco Pitto, MD and James M. Buchanan, FRCS will also be attending.

21st Annual Congress of the International Society for Technology in Arthroplasty in Seoul, Korea

The 21st Annual Congress of the International Society for Technology in Arthroplasty will be held October 1-4, 2008 at the Hotel Shilla, Seoul, Korea. FARM, Inc. Board member, Raj Sinha, MD, PHD will be attending.

ISTA is a non-profit public benefit corporation and its goal is to promote public awareness, education and research in arthroplasty.

Masters in Revision Total Hip Replacement: the Femoral Side

The goal of this meeting is to explore current concepts related to revision surgery of the femoral component in total hip replacement.

Auckland Art Gallery, Auckland, New Zealand

Date / Time:
Friday, 25 March 2005, 17:40 to 20:00

Revision total hip replacement is a challenging surgery requiring sound biological strategies for bone stock defect management and dedicated implants for stable fixation. This masters in revision surgery of the femoral component addresses the upside and downside potential for bone grafting techniques, proximal and distal fixation revision components, and highlights the design and operative choices in revision total hip replacement

Upon completion of this course, participants should have a better understanding of:

  • The basic science of bone regeneration
  • Benefits of using bone grafts/current design revision stems
  • Technical ups and downs
  • The current knowledge of clinical outcomes
