Covering hip and hind limb orthopaedic cases from diagnosis to post-operative care, this two-day workshop will allow you to immerse yourself in hip dislocation, hip dysplasia, femoral head and neck fractures, iliac and sacroiliac fractures, complex femoral fractures, and tarsal instability. With specialist educators and tutors helping you in small-group practical labs, you will develop your confidence in approaching these cases in practice. This practical workshop will build your skills, and could also be a useful adjunct to preparations for membership examinations.
