After a 1-year hiatus due to COVID-19, Village Physical Therapy is proud to announce that our annual Orthopedic Surgical Update conference is returning to Genesee Community College on March 12, 2022.
Orthopedic Surgical Update is an opportunity for rehabilitation professionals to learn about the latest and emerging surgical techniques directly from local orthopedic surgeons and health professionals. The focus of this course is to describe the clinical indications, intra-operative procedures, and post-operative management and rehabilitation strategies. This will enable rehabilitation professionals to become better diagnosticians and design safer, more effective post-operative rehabilitation programs through enhanced understanding of the surgical procedures.
This year, we're excited to offer both traditional in-person and virtual experiences!

Shoulder Arthroplasty and Management of the Failed Rotator Cuff Repair David Privitera, MD
Rotator cuff pathology and subsequent surgical repair are common conditions encountered by rehabilitation clinicians. But, what happens when a rotator cuff tear is exceptionally large, the surgical repair fails, or significant concomitant degeneration exists? Dr. Privitera will discuss the surgical options available to patients, and post-operative considerations for the clinicians overseeing their rehabilitation.
9:45 AM-11:00 AM
Regenerative Therapies and Orthobiologics Daniel Day, DO
Dr. Day will provide an update on the application of interventional orthopedic techniques including diagnostic and therapeutic workup and injections, dry needling, prolotherapy, and percutaneous tendon debridement. He will also discuss biologics, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and bone marrow concentrate (BMC) injections. He will discuss the indications for such procedures, the benefits/risks, and rehabilitation considerations.
11:15 AM-12:30 PM
Anterior Approach to THR Timothy Wagner, MD
Dr. Wagner will review the operative procedure for the anterior approach to total hip arthroplasty, comparing and contrasting the indications, precautions, and postoperative considerations with the posterior approach. He will discuss recent advances in surgical techniques and share his thoughts on post-operative rehabilitation.
The purpose of this talk is to provide the audience with a general overview of anterior cruciate ligament injury epidemiology, clinical evaluation/diagnosis, and modern surgical reconstruction techniques. There will be an emphasis on anatomic reconstruction and graft selection. Additionally, the audience will learn about general rehabilitation guidelines and timeframes, as well as our current NIH funded research efforts on the topic.
2:45 pM-4:00 PM
How Can Yoga Be Incorporated Into Patient Rehabilitation Elyssa Bourke, DC
Dr. Bourke will offer a brief introduction to the origins of yoga, discuss the various forms of yoga that are being taught in our communities, and give a brief description of what a participant can expect from a class. This will assist professionals recommending the most appropriate class to enter and what modifications or limitations they may need to address. The presentation will explore a few of the universal principles of yoga that may benefit patients such as mindfulness, centering, balance, rhythm and breath awareness. Yoga has the capacity to offer benefits to all who choose to participate if the class setting, poses and modifications and teacher are a helpful match for the patient.
