Dr. Goding Teaches Arthrosurface Shoulder Resurfacing To Surgeons At Chicago Bioskills Course
June 29, 2017
Dr. Goding recently returned from The Orthopaedic Learning Center in Rosemont, Illinois, where he lectured and taught a bioskills lab in shoulder resurfacing to other surgeons. The shoulder resurfacing is a type of bone sparing total shoulder replacement that has been shown to be 10 times more stable than traditional shoulder replacement. The Arthrosurface Ovo shoulder arthroplasty with inlay glenoid has many advantages. In addition to preserving bone, the additional stability of this implant allows patients to return to activities and jobs which would never be possible with a traditional shoulder replacement. Surgeons came from as far away as Texas to attend this skills course.
“ Dr. Goding is one of the most experienced surgeons in the nation with shoulder resurfacing”. Stated Rudi Inge , Midwest Regional Manager for Arthrosurface. “He is able to teach less experienced surgeons his techniques and help them feel more comfortable with this procedure which can be more challenging technically than a standard Shoulder Replacement”
Recent lab testing has shown the inlay Glenoid to be significantly more stable than a standard total shoulder replacement (Gagliano et al. J Shoulder Elbow Surg. 2017 Jul;26(7):1113-1120. doi: 10.1016/j.jse.2017.01.018. Epub 2017 Mar 27.) Dr. Goding believes that this stability is key to success of the implant .
“I have sent patients back to heavy manual labor, athletics, and even powerlifting after performing this procedure.” Dr. Goding said “There is just no way I would ever feel confident allowing that level of activity in a patient who has had a traditional Shoulder Replacement. This procedure is joint preserving , meaning that much less bone is removed. This, I believe is the main reason for the added stability”.
“ I am truly happy to be able to provide cutting edge procedures like the shoulder resurfacing to my patients. Seeing them return to an active lifestyle is truly a wonderful feeling”.
Dr. Goding will continue teaching his technique for this surgery and lecturing on its benefits at regional and national orthopaedic meetings on an ongoing basis.
