We invite you to the first ever Knee Master course on Complex knee injury in Goa on 15 and 16 Feb 2019 at Ci-dade Goa Resorts. […]
In this video, Dr. LaPrade discusses the key points of his lecture at the 2018 Global Cartilage Expert Consensus Meeting. His lecture highlights fresh osteoarticualr allografts for the treatment of osteochondral defects in the knee. The use of fresh osteoarticular allografts are a viable for treatment for osteochondral defects. Osteoarticualr allografts are […]
The patient was a 24 year old male injured during a tumbling landing. He sustained a severe varus noncontact injury.
An MRI scan demonstrated a complete tear of his posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), a grade III complete posterolateral corner injury, a minimally displaced anterior tibial plateau fracture, and a medial meniscus root tear. PCL stress radiographs […]
The 2018 Vail International Complex Knee Symposium (VICKS), sponsored by Smith & Nephew, will be held June 14-16 in Vail, Colorado. Bringing together the top complex knee surgeons from around the world as faculty, attendees will develop anatomic-based reconstructions on complex knee procedures.
Defining surgical relevant anatomic landmarks can be particularly difficult at the time of surgery.
The following slides provide an outline of definable landmarks based upon our studies that have proven to be very useful to residents, fellows, and surgeons in surgery. The slides outline the primary anatomic landmarks for MCL surgery, posterolateral (PLC) knee surgery and […]
This guide demonstrates the interpretation of the amount of side-to-side differences in stress radiographs to determine a complete or a partial medial knee, lateral knee and PCL tear.
This guide is useful to post in one’s clinic to assist with the interpretation of stress radiographs. Stress radiographs should be obtained in all […]
Moderator, Dr. Alan Getgood will feature Dr. Robert LaPrade, MD, PhD’s article “Comparable Outcomes After Bucket-Handle Meniscal Repair and Vertical Meniscal Repair Can Be Achieved at a Minimum 2 Years’ Follow-up.” Meniscal tears can lead to significant pain and disability, necessitating surgical treatment. Repair of bucket-handle tears can be particularly challenging, and this cohort study […]
This video series was recorded during the Instructional Course `Anatomic and Biomechanical Basis of Knee Ligament Reconstruction`, held in 2015 at the Smith & Nephew Surgical Skills Centre. Deconstruction to Reconstruction: Knee Ligament Reconstruction is a short series of faculty led video demonstrations using anatomical specimens prepared to show the ACL, MPFL, MCL, LCL, PCL and […]
June 25 – 27, 2015 Dr. Robert LaPrade and Dr. Lars Engebretsen hosted the Vail International Complex Knee Symposium (VICKS) Anatomic-based Reconstructions in Vail, Colorado. The lectures and presentations focused on anatomic-based reconstructions of the knee.

Dr. LaPrade performed a surgical demo of a posterolateral knee reconstruction. The main focus of the live surgical demo was to review the essential steps for an anatomic posterolateral knee reconstruction.
Performed in both English and Portuguese, the live demonstration on December 1, 2015, had over 300 viewers […]
