Dallas Orthopaedic Surgeon and Shoulder Specialist Invited to Direct Workshop in Nice, France

Dallas, TX — Local orthopedic surgeon Dr. Kevin Kruse was recently invited to lecture at the international Nice Shoulder Course training in Nice, France.

The three surgeons led a course titled “How to Perform US Guided Injections.” Dr. Kruse led an additional course titled “How to Perform Sonography of the Shoulder: Make it Easy for Me!”

The intensive three-day shoulder course covering arthroscopy and prosthetic surgeries included live symposia, case discussions, and live surgery sessions and workshops with leading shoulder surgeons across the globe. Dr. Kevin Kruse is uniquely qualified to lecture in this course as he completed a fellowship in shoulder surgery at the Centre Orthopedique Santy in Lyon, France, where he worked closely with the notable surgeon and global authority on shoulder surgery, Dr. Gilles Walch.

Goals for the three day course included understanding various techniques for rotator cuff repairs, treating massive rotator cuff tears, and developing strategies for treating shoulder instability. There were also courses offered on the physio-pathology and treatment approaches of proximal humerus fractures, acromioclavicular dislocations, and arthroplasties.

Attendees who finished the course received an accredited certificate of continuing medical education from the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education which can be transferred into American Medical Association continuing credits.
