Glasgow Cadaveric Master Class: A Cut Above the Rest

Wednesday, January 14, 2015

On the 19th-21st November 2014, MatOrtho® hosted a fully booked surgical training event in Glasgow. With two days of morning lecture sessions and afternoon cadaveric workshops, it was a valuable opportunity to educate new and existing users of the Medial Rotation Knee™ and the BOX® Total Ankle Replacement. The courses were hosted in Glasgow University’s state-of-the-art Clinical Anatomy Skills Centre.

Welcome dinners and accommodation were at the Hotel du Vin at 1 Devonshire Gardens. Feedback was overwhelmingly positive: ‘The organisation was excellent and we were really well looked after throughout.’

Medial Rotation Knee™

The Primary Knee Arthroplasty lecture sessions on Thursday 20th November were led by Mr Simon Lewthwaite FRCS, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital in Oswestry (RJAH). After a buffet lunch in the University’s historical Museum of Anatomy, attendees moved to the wet lab facility for a practical cadaveric session led by Mr Chris Evans FRCS, also a consultant at the RJAH. Delegates watched him demonstrate the procedure, then split into smaller teams, and guided by a faculty of seven highly experienced orthopaedic surgeons, every attendee had the chance to complete the procedure themselves.


BOX® Total Ankle Replacement

2014 was an exciting year for the BOX® Ankle with continued positive results and a surge in interest, and we were inundated with applications for our BOX® Ankle Master Class on Friday the 21st November. The course followed the same format as the previous day, with both the morning and afternoon sessions led by RJAH Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon Mr Andy Bing FRCS. He was full of praise for the event: ‘I thoroughly enjoyed the course and feel privileged to have been asked to lead it.’

Surgeons and staff alike found the courses highly educational and beneficial. Attendees praised the unique learning opportunity and the chance to share tips and tricks in a peer-to-peer environment; as one delegate remarked, ‘I liked hearing different opinions about topics and surgeons' different preferences.’ The event was a great success and we anticipate even greater interest at future MatOrtho® Education Master Classes.
