Periprosthetic fractures occur around total joint replacements and are difficult to treat. Occurring most often in older patients with multiple medical conditions, they require surgical expertise in both reconstruction and trauma.

Moderated by Brian Daines, MD, this lecture reviews treatment options for periprosthetic fractures and a discussion of case of studies with UW Medicine physicians David Barei, MD and Howard Chansky, MD. Learn how these orthopedic surgeons at UW Medical Center and Harborview Medical Center are working together to offer patients treatment options for these challenging injuries.
