Course aim

The intention is that enthusiastic delegates who engage with the course should take away a greater understanding of the indications, principles and methods of knee osteotomy together with an increased confidence in the practicalities of performing these procedures.

Limited places available.

 

Practical cadaveric workshops

Practical cadaveric workshops will take place on each day of the course at the Newcastle Surgical Training Centre. The subject matter will be high tibial osteotomy on Monday and distal femoral osteotomy on Tuesday.

Delegates will watch a Saw Bone demonstration from our expert international faculty, before moving into the cadaveric WetLab. Working in pairs, each surgeon will have an opportunity to perform one procedure and assist in the other. The practicals will be directed from a demonstration table, with images transmitted onto screens around the lab. The cadaveric specimens will realistically simulate surgery with a dedicated scrub nurse to facilitate instrument flow and a supervising faculty member split between two workstations to explain the procedures. The session will end with a roaming camera demonstrating the different devices used around the lab.

 

Planning workshops for osteotomy surgery

Delegates will attend classroom workshops, and annotate paper x-rays with appropriate stationery, focussed on improving understanding of deformity analysis and subsequent osteotomy planning, prior to a demonstration of computer based planning simulations.

Workshop discussion groups

These small group seminars have are designed to promote discussion and give delegates an opportunity to ask questions from the international expert faculty. They’ve been a popular component of the course in the past so remain an essential part of the program. A key element here will be clinical case discussion. Delegates are encouraged to bring their own cases to the meeting for discussion with faculty and other delegates.

The lecture content has been reduced to make more time for the lab based practicals and workshops. However we’ve kept the essential elements to understand the principles of knee osteotomy.

 

Social opportunity

Discussion and debate is a key part of any meeting, that’s why there will be an opportunity for delegates and faculty to network over an informal dinner on Monday evening. We’re being joined by Mark Stevenson, author, comedian and futurologist, to deliver a lively after dinner speech.
