About the course

2019 will be the 8th year of the QE Shoulder Arthroscopy Live Surgery Course. Following the success of previous years, we have decided to create a two-day event to allow more live surgery cases, discussion and debate.

Delegates will observe multiple live surgeries throughout the two-day event involving the latest state of the art techniques in arthroplasty and arthroscopic shoulder surgery.

Increasing the course to a two-day event will allow more live surgery cases and the opportunity for more case studies, presentations and discussion panels from an expert UK and International Faculty. Delegates attending for two days will be invited to a complimentary course dinner on the Friday evening.

We will have a two-way audio link to the operating theatres to encourage dialogue and questions throughout the procedures. This encourages active dialogue during procedures not only from the faculty but also from the auditorium audience; it is the dialogue and discussion which makes this event unique.

The Physiotherapy programme will run on Saturday and include morning discussions on patient outcomes followed by observation of the surgical programme in the afternoon.

Who should attend

The course is aimed at surgeons and physiotherapists of all levels of experience and interest in arthroscopic shoulder surgery and sports injuries. CPD points applied for.
