The ISHA Virtual Education Programme

The Virtual Education Programme from ISHA – The Hip Preservation Society is a first-class open access virtual learning programme comprising live webinars and live surgeries with leading hip surgeons and hip preservation experts from around the world. Attendees to the Virtual Education Programme can expect to have the opportunity to learn practical tips and tricks, put their questions to leaders in the field and find out about the latest thinking in hip arthroscopy, hip preservation surgery and rehabilitation.

The ISHA Virtual Education Programme has several distinct advantages, including increased inclusivity around the globe, improved accessibility to virtual live and on demand sessions, and great flexibility and comfort for learning at a time that best suits you.

All ISHA Virtual Education Programme content is being recorded and collated into an on demand “ISHA Academy” – an ever-growing repository of high-quality, open access content that is intended to enable surgeons and hip care professionals around the world to provide their patients with the best possible care now and in the future.

“ISHA’s live surgery program allows hip preservationists worldwide to join international thought leaders in their OR — virtually. Using Proximie, the incredible augmented reality surgery platform, the surgeon, moderator, and viewer can point to the arthroscopy screen in real time, while conversing with the operating surgeon. This series is an “only in ISHA” opportunity for sharing of tips, tricks, and ideas with some of the world’s leading experts in Hip Preservation. We look forward to seeing you there!” — Benjamin Domb, MD

“The ISHA Webinar Series offers a unique forum for interactive thought sharing and collaboration by international leaders in hip preservation. Topics and areas of targeted interest reflect the diverse clinical challenges faced by providers. Viewers may expect to gain valuable insights into the art of clinical decision making with a modern, real world perspective. These seminars promise to add value to any committed hip preservation practice.” – Brian Giordano, MD
