Engineer beats trainee surgeons in a hip replacement competition!

“Excellent course. It was very useful and I learnt a lot especially the direct clinical application”

On the 5th December 2011 the MSk Lab ran an Acetabular Science and Technology Workshop, involving:  2 lecturers – Mr Derek McMinn and Professor Cobb – talking about the clinical applications and associated issues, five companies and twenty trainees hungry to develop their surgical knowledge.

I was prepared for a host of hitches, being the first time we had run this course, but it all ran very smoothly receiving extremely positive feedback from the companies and attendees alike. In the morning sessions there were presentations from B Braun, Ceramtec, JRI, Mathys and Stryker, giving an overview of their products and the differences between them.
