Mr Simon Owen-Johnstone and Mr Joydeep Sinha, London Bridge Orthopaedics’s senior orthopaedic surgeons, recently had the privilege of talking to a senior group of physiotherapists from Crystal Palace Physiotherapy Group.
The setting in a meeting room at Number One London Bridge lent itself to a tutorial style, which benefitted both speaker and audience and encouraging dialogue.
Mr Sinha opened with a broad view of painful shoulder conditions. Mr Owen-Johnstone followed with a series of case presentations focussing on complex problems for which there had not been a simple ‘quick-fix’ surgical solution. In particular, the cases were those in which Mr Owen-Johnstone had discussed with Mr Sinha and Physios, illustrating the importance of collaborative working to find the best solution for the patient.
One of the Physios from CPPG commented that he found the post-operative reflections most useful: ‘would I do the same again?’, as the treatment doesn’t always work as expected, and it was useful to hear the surgeons’ approach to this difficult situation.
Elsewhere, Mr Khai Lam performed a live surgery at the Boardroom at St Olaf House at London Bridge Hospital to many physiotherapists.
MR Khai Lam performed a minimally invasive anterior lumbar disc replacement procedure from an operating theatre while physios watched via a broadcast, learned and asked questions throughout.
This was accompanied by a Q&A in regards to when physios should refer patients to specialist consultants and Mr Lam discussing spinal navigation.
The next upcoming event is on the 22nd of March. At 6:30 pm, consultants from London Bridge Orthopaedics will host a GP event at the Hilton at London Bridge. If you wish to attend this event, then contact us here.
