This symposium draws surgeons from all over the world. This year, Dr. Carreira again will serve as faculty, including instructing surgeons on the surgical techniques in the lab. In addition, Dr. Carreira will present his technique on hip labrum reconstruction using a shuttle technique during the lecture series.
In cases where the labrum tissue is torn beyond repair, replacing it with cadaver tissue is an alternative. This technique has been developed by Dr. Carreira. Patients who have been treated with this technique are being asked to enroll in a research study.
