Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, Kolkata today announced the launch of their second Arthroplasty Course with the theme of ‘Primary Total Knee Replacement and Hip Replacement.’ The Apollo Gleneagles Arthroplasty Course would be an intensive three-day instructional course using comprehensive case studies and ten live surgical demonstrations. The course, being held at Swabhumi from 2nd to 4th August, would benefit the young orthopaedic surgeons and also offer an opportunity for skill development to the practising surgeons.
A team of highly qualified orthopaedic surgeons, both from the hospital and from across the country, will perform ten surgeries, which will include difficult corrections of joint problems and complications at the hospitals’ state-of-the-art operation theatres. A live streaming of these surgeries will be done for the participants at the venue where participants will also get an opportunity to have real-time conversations with the surgeons and the expert panel. Thus, the participants would benefit from interactive discussions, where all aspects of primary total knee replacement and hip replacement would be addressed by experts in the field.
Dr. B. D. Chatterjee, Director Orthopedics, who is spearheading this novel initiative as the Course Director said, “This is the second year of this annual course which this year is attended by over 200 delegates from across the country. The three day-meet will focus on highlighting the latest advancements in the field of arthroscopy. We have designed the course to bring together surgeons, exhibitors and innovators to share ideas around the latest techniques, tools, and technology relating to Arthroplasty. We are confident that the delegates attending the course will gather significant knowledge and expertise from this programme.”
Dr Joy Basu, Vice President – Administration, Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, Kolkata added,“This is a unique initiative by Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, which will benefit the upcoming practitioners by updating them on the latest developments in the field of primary total knee replacement that will help them to deliver positive long term outcomes.
