Behind-the-scenes: MACKIS 2019
More than 100 orthopedic surgeons from around the globe attended the 2019 Minnesota Anatomic Complex Knee International Symposium (MACKIS) conference September 11-14 in Minneapolis at the Mall of America Radisson Blu.
We were honored to have 4 of our experts, including MACKIS chairman Dr. Robert LaPrade, both presenting and demonstrating on a variety of topics:
- Robert LaPrade, MD, PhD: MACKIS chairman LaPrade conducted a series of demonstrations – such as anatomic lateral collateral ligament (LCL) reconstruction and meniscal root repair, among others – and presented on the key anatomic principles of the medial and posterolateral knee.
- Christopher M. Larson, MD: Dr. Larson conducted a demonstration on what to do when facing certain ACL repair issues.
- Corey A. Wulf, MD: Dr. Wulf presented on the topic of oblique ligament tears.
- Jill Monson, PT, OCS: Monson presented on advanced rehabilitation concerns for multigamentous knee injuries.
Our cameras were there to capture a behind-the-scenes look at this prestigious conference. Here’s a look at some of the top moments:
