This is a one day course covering the basic principles of shoulder arthroscopy.
During the course we will be discussing the development and rationale behind arthroscopic shoulder surgery and how to set up arthroscopic equipment. Further topics will include patient positioning and diagnosing pathologies for rotator cuff and instability.
There will be 3 live surgery cases scheduled for the day, including instability and rotator cuff repair.
The Arthrex MobileLab will be available for lunchtime saw bone workshops for hands-on experience of the techniques being shown and discussed.
This course is aimed primarily at orthopaedic surgeons in their early stages of training but will also offer insights to more experienced surgeons wishing to view and learn from live surgery cases and discussion. The course is also open to physiotherapists and other health professionals to promote learning and liaison between specialities.
