Course Topics

Orthopedics Potpourri

Explain the normal regulation and metabolism of phosphate; Recognize common phosphate-related disorders; Order appropriate laboratory tests for the diagnosis of phosphate disorders; Identify causes of pain after open reduction and internal fixation of ankle fractures; Estimate risk for infection based on classification of open foot fractures.

Spine Problems
