Arthroscopy training course- A Grand success
Knee injuries are very common problems among sports persons. The diagnosis
and management of these injuries has considerably improved over the last few
years and minimally invasive artho-scopic surguries have come up as a
promising option.However, not many centers across our country specialize and
have adequate expertise for training personnel in this field. A cadaveric
course was organized at Sports injury Centre, Safdarjung Hospital on
September 20-21, 2014 to educate and teach orthopedic professionals from all
parts of the country. Around 30 delegates from all over the country and 1
delegate from Egypt attended the course and received specialized training at
the hands of some of the most eminent faculty members of this country.
Delegates were given hands on training on performing arthroscopic procedures
on the knee for recon- structing knee ligaments and treating the cartilage
defects of knee. A delegate from Egypt who attended the course rated it as
one of his best experience as far as learning of such skill is concerned.
The other highlight of the course was the formation of Arthroscopic learning
society for ensuring continuous impartment of skill and knowledge to
orthopedic surgeons across our nation. SIC has been organizing such events
in past where many orthopedic surgeons have been trained.
