After hearing requests from Interventional Orthopedics Foundation (IOF) members all across the country, we are excited to announce IOF’s programming is expanding to bring courses to Tampa, Florida and Seattle, Washington. As the regenerative medicine field continues to grow, we recognized the need to offer our course curriculum in new locations to best serve our members and help physicians across the country become Interventional Orthopedics experts.

To kick off our new national course offerings, on September 7 we will offer our Basic Shoulder Orthobiologic Core Skills Course in Seattle, Washington. This one day course is designed for physicians who require a basic understanding of orthobiologics and injection techniques for the shoulder – and want to progress their knowledge and skills utilizing ultrasound and fluoroscopy machines for stem cell and PRP injection methods. Basic diagnostic ultrasound skills and hands-on image guided shoulder skills course will provide a comprehensive review of anatomy, pathology, and pathophysiology of joint injury and degeneration. The course will start with a didactic session with diagnostic scanning and interventional techniques presented during the didactic instructional sessions and will be practiced under the direct supervision of the Instructors in order to become proficient with these skills.

Attendees will learn the following procedures:

  • Shoulder exam
  • AC joint intra-articular under US and  fluoro
  • Biceps tendon under US
  • Infraspinatus and teres under US
  • Intra-articular under US and fluoro
  • Sub-deltoid under US
  • Subscapularis tendon under US
  • Supraspinatus under US

On October 19, we will be offering our Basic Hip and Knee Orthobiologic Core Skills Course in sunny Tampa, Florida. This course is designed for physicians who require a basic understanding of orthobiologics and injection techniques for the hip and knee – and want to progress their knowledge and skills utilizing ultrasound and fluoroscopy for stem cell and PRP injection methods.

IOF is proud to be the only organization offering standardized training on nearly 100 Interventional Orthopedics procedures. Our courses are set apart by our standardized curriculum which ensures that all course attendees walk away with a complete understanding of the procedures we are teaching, rather than what the instructor decides to teach. Courses include a video didactic lecture, hands-on cadaver work, testing by observation, and then a written test.

With a distinct pathway to becoming an expert, IOF is the perfect place to begin and advance your regenerative orthopedics education. By participating in the certification program, IOF course attendees can earn CME credits and will be eligible to earn 189 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. All courses include access to video didactic lessons for each procedure that you can watch at any time to review a procedure before treating a patient.

IOF will continue to offer courses in Colorado. To view the full IOF course schedule please click here.
