Knee Arthroscopy Course

Course Outline

Arthroscopic Surgery has become an integral part of every Orthopaedic surgeon’s practice. Procedures like Diagnostic Arthroscopy, Meniscectomy and basic Arthroscopic procedures are now a patient demand as also surgeon preference. This is true even in the most remote part of our world. Patients want to recover faster and get back to work quickly. Every surgeon practicing today needs to understand the principles and fundamentals of Arthroscopic Surgery and avoid compromises and complications of open surgery on the knee joint. This two-day comprehensive course encompasses “all-in- one with certification” to fulfill the Dreams of any Orthpaedic surgeon wishing to practice safe Arthroscopic Surgery. Arthroscopic Surgery has been the “Achilles heel” of novices and sometimes even of an advanced Arthroscopic surgeon. The course promises extensive training in this aspect with dedicated hours in the simulation as well as animal tissue laboratories to perfect skills.

A visit to the Operative Room will only enhance the confidence of the delegates after witnessing live surgeries and give them a boost to overcome difficulties in their own operating room.
