DePuy Synthes Sponsored Anterior Approach THA Cadaver Lab Opportunity

Orthopedic Surgery
Residents & Fellows

Thursday, May 4th from 8 am – 4 pm

FAQ Fellows & Residents

For the best experience, we recommend staying at the Wynn Encore for the duration of the event – that puts you in the best position to network with your peers and the event faculty. It also saves you from having to negotiate the notoriously long Las Vegas taxi queues. We’ll even transport you to and from the Cadaver Lab. 

We have a room block available at a discounted rate  – available on a first come, first served basis.  If you wish to stay at another location that is your choice 

The regular price for rooms is $1,200 per night, however they are available for $599 for Wednesday. $199 Thursday and $559 Friday.

The $1,400 reimbursement for travel/ accommodation recognizes the high cost of staying in Las Vegas. This is a higher reimbursement than last year – in recognition of the higher accommodation costs.

Contact [email protected] if you are interested in sharing a room with another fellow or resident.

As a sponsored participant, your fee for attendance of the Anterior Hip Foundation Innovation Symposium event will also be paid for by Depuy Synthes. You do not need to fill out the registration form. 

DePuy Synthes will reimburse travel and lodging expenses up to $1,400. 

Reimbursement will be sent by check or PayPal following your attendance of the May 4-6 events and your submission of expenses. We will provide a form on the website to upload copies of expenses. The symposium ends at noon on Saturday. 

Your attendance is required for the entire symposium (Friday May 5th to noon on Saturday May 6th) for you to be eligible for free attendance and subsequent reimbursement. 

The following meals are included:
