Learning Objectives: Participants will (be able to): 1. Gain insight on the outcomes of omitting superfluous radiographs at follow-up visits for Ankle Fracture ORIFs that can save the patient time, cost, and radiation exposure. 2. Analyze the data for outcomes of previously treated intertrochanteric hip fractures requiring arthroplasty services for post-traumatic osteoarthritis to increase awareness of the unique challenges patients and providers may face when tackling these clinical cases. 3. Discuss the risk factors for final-fusion failure after the treatment of early-onset Scoliosis may lead to better treatment strategies and better patient outcomes. 4. Determine whether to implant a Total Hip Arthroplasty Versus Hemiarthroplasty for Displaced Femoral Neck based on the level 1 research presented and discussed.
