Symposium Breakout Sessions 2015

The successful format of small group discussions, demonstrations and hands-on sessions will be maintained and delegates will be able to discuss a range of related topics with a faculty of international and national experts.

NEW FOR 2015

There will be two ‘masterclasses’ in surgical approaches during the symposium. entranceEach will use fresh cadaveric material for live demonstration of surgical approaches in small groups. They will take place at the Anatomy Department, University of Edinburgh Medical School.

Wednesday 19th August: Modern approaches to the shoulder. This will be led by Mr C. Mike Robinson and will focus on the sabre incision and deltoid split for proximal humeral fractures as well as ‘tips and tricks’ for more conventional approaches. Space is limited to 20 attendees – early booking is recommended.

Friday 21st August: Approaches for complex knee trauma. This will be led by Prof Cong-Feng Luo from Shanghai, who will demonstrate the approaches and techniques applicable to his “Three Column Theory” of tibial plateau fractures. Space is limited to 20 attendees – early booking is recommended.

Please note that you can only choose ONE cadaveric session.

Please indicate your preferences on the booking form. Please note that some sessions have limited availability.
