In its endeavour to build awareness and consciousness Apollo Gleneagles Hospital Kolkata launched their first one of a kind Arthroplasty Course with a theme of Primary Total Knee Replacement. The Apollo Gleneagles Arthroplasty Course, being held for the first time, would be an intensive two-day instructional course using comprehensive case studies and live surgical demonstrations. The course being held at Swabhumi on the 20th and 21st of July would be of benefit to young orthopaedic surgeons and also offer an opportunity of skill development to the practicing surgeons.
A team of highly qualified orthopaedic surgeons, both from the hospital and from across the country, will perform about seven 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 live conversations with the surgeons and the expert panel. Thus the participants would benefit from interactive discussions, where all aspects of primary total knee 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, “We are pleased to introduce this new annual course in our curriculum which this year is attended by over 200 delegates from across the country. The two day meet will focus on highlighting the latest advancements in the field of arthroscopy. We have designed the meet to bring together surgeons, exhibitors, and innovators to share ideas around the latest techniques, tools, and technology relating to Arthroplasty. We are sure that the assembled doctors will gather significant knowledge and expertise from this program.”
Dr Joy Basu, Vice President – Admisnistration, Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, Kolkata added, “This is a unique initiative by Apollo Gleneagles Hospital 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. Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals, Kolkata, is well known for its clinical excellence and expertise that delivers best-in-class treatment for all kinds of joint problems. The live surgical demonstration adds immense value to the Course as it gives the participants a practical demonstration of the procedure. Along with the Arthroplasty Course, we will also introduce a post-graduate Arthroplasty Fellowship Programme shortly.”
