Now in it’s 10th year, the Basingstoke Annual Knee Osteotomy Masterclass continues with the latest innovations, including for the very first time in the UK a live femoral & tibial simultaneous correction.
We have a line up of Key Faculty from the UK and abroad, who will explore exciting new developments in knee osteotomy for 2017.
Live DFO and Cadaveric HTO
Cadaveric demonstrations of a High Tibial Osteotomy will be shown together with other fixation devices for HTO on both days.
Workshops & lectures
Practical HTO & DFO workshops with an experienced national and international faculty to assist and explain procedures.
Planning for osteotomy surgery including software training.
Workshop discussion groups for HTO and DFO – the essentials learned hands on.
Lectures and case discussions from world renowned faculty.
Day one of the course is aimed at younger and less experienced surgeons who want to get to grips with the basics of ostoteomy and understand how to perform a high tibial osteotomy. This will provide invaluable information to the trainees in preparing for their FRCS and for those surgeons who wants to get to grips with this procedure.
The focus of the day will be short lectures to set the scene followed by longer discussion sessions to allow delegates to ask questions about each and every aspect of High Tibial Osteotomy surgery.
The course will cover the indications, patient selection and execution of this procedure.In additiona there will be live cadaveric demonstrations from the Arthrex mobile cadaveric facility to show step by step how to do an osteotomy. This will cover:
Finally we will show how to fix the osteotomy and plate selection.This will be supplemented by a hands on saw bone work shop which allows delegates to get hands on experience in carrying out HTO surgery
The focus of day 2 is more around Femoral Osteotomy, and the more complex aspects of osteotomy surgery.
As with day 1 the international and national experts will walk you though how to execute this procedure safely.
We will show for the first time a live demo of a Distal Femoral Ostoeomy from theatre and will walk delegates through the procedure step by step from the mobile cadaveric lab.
We will also introduce new ideas and developments in the field of osteotomy surgery.
Finally all delegates will get hands on training with a saw bone session where we each delegate will carry out a DFO in the ideal training scenario.
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.
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.
Who should attend
The course is not only aimed at surgeons with little or no experience of osteotomy: we also encourage knee surgeons who regularly perform osteotomy to come and share their experiences.
12 CPD points awarded in 2016.
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 Thursday evening.
