Lower Limb Reconstructions and Replacements – A Kneevolution

Early Bird Booking Offer - Book this course now at a reduced cost of £32 + VAT - ending 05.02.18

Mr Henry Atkinson, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, presents this two-part evening course which will look at the subjects of lower limb tendon and ligament reconstructions, followed by the advances in knee replacement surgery.

Ligament and tendon ruptures are a common and challenging problem for orthopaedic surgeons. Traditional open surgical repairs of tendon or ligament ruptures often involve suturing together degenerative and fragile tissues that are at risk of failing. Mr Atkinson has been pioneering internal bracing of these injuries and will discuss this new surgical technique. The method reinforces and augments traditional open surgical repairs without disrupting the healing process. It allows patients to dispense with all types of plaster casting, allowing immediate joint motion. Benefits of the surgery will be covered, such as earlier return to weight-bearing, more rapid recovery and faster return to normal function.

In the second half of the evening, Mr Atkinson will discuss the ever-changing landscape of knee replacement and implants. Total knee replacement (TKR) surgery is a very effective treatment option for patients with disabling and severe end-stage knee pain. It is usually life-changing surgery and most patients report improvements in outcome measures scoring pain, function and quality of life. Despite this, around 15%–55% of TKR patients have some level of persisting knee pain, 10%–50% of TKR patients report poor knee function, and mean published dissatisfaction rates range between 15% and 30%. The solution to this: patient-matched, fully customised CT-based 3D-printed bespoke knee replacements, better resort the patient anatomy and lead to better clinical and functional outcomes, with satisfaction levels of 95%. Henry presents this latest development and the London Sports Orthopaedics experience.
