The use of video for teaching surgeons and making surgical training videos

Video education in knee surgery

Modern knee surgeons are feeling progressively more at home with visual education – tele-conferencing, tele-education and online forums. However, the creation of high quality educational material takes time, patience and expertise. ​Here are some tips for beginners: The surgeon should use a head-mounted camera system, which will focus on the fingers via a finger-tracking mechanism.

The 2017 meeting in Linz took place a week ago. This is an annual event that Jürgen Barthofer and his colleague Andreas Schneiderbauer set up three years ago. This is the third time I have been lucky enough to be invited to speak. The theme for the meeting was ACL surgery and what is new. It […]

Back to tennis after meniscal transplant

thumbnail

Andrew has been happy to offer the benefit of his personal experience with a distal femoral osteotomy combined with a meniscal transplant. Andrew had a valgus knee and a destroyed meniscus. To straighten a knee that is sitting in a ‘knocked’ (or valgus) position 80% of the time we correct on the femur, and that […]

New publication on PCL technique

ladder

Our group is pleased to have a new posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) publication approved and online as an open access article. In the article we discuss the technical issues of restoration of normal knee stability after PCL injury. Restoring stability is especially challenging in PCL reconstruction because of the awkward position of the ‘footprint’ of the […]

Bilateral partial knee replacements in a kickboxer

thumbnail

Robert at 57 had bilateral unicompartmental knee replacements (2016). After 8 months he is doing really well and wants to do his 3rd Dan in kickboxing in 2018! Robert came to see me last year (2016) complaining of severe lateral knee pain on both sides. He was in varus (bow-legged) and not suitable for osteotomy surgery because he already […]

Unusual bilateral tibial osteotomy for knock-knee deformity

thumbnail

Neil is a really great example of someone who has had bilateral valgus (knock knees) – but interestingly his deformity was in the tibia rather than the femur. So he had bilateral tibial correction for his knock-kneed alignment, where more commonly the osteotomy would be in the femur. He has done brilliantly. He first came […]

Double-level osteotomy – femur and tibia

thumbnail

Richard is a very fit and active 56-year old gentleman who has his own business. After his own internet research he went forward with a double-level (femur and tibia) osteotomy, and has not regretted it. He developed medial knee pain on the left side and noticed quite a bowing of his leg which was getting […]

Multi-ligament injury in 60 year old skier

thumbnail

Rob is an amazing case of how an older active skier can still do well with an internal brace repair even after a multi-ligament injury. Rob is a 60 year old gentleman who skis in the Alps and to a good standard. I gathered he is normally a very fit and active gentleman who does rock […]

Correcting valgus despite previous knee replacement

thumbnail

Julian is a very interesting case where I ended up straightening his leg via osteotomy many years after a knee replacement. He was 56 when he first came to see me. He was a very active gentleman but had severe valgus osteoarthritis – in other words he was knock-kneed with worn out lateral compartments. His […]

Amazing joint case

thumbnail

This is a very interesting case and took a lot of organising. This gentleman was involved in a very nasty road traffic accident approximately two years ago, and he sustained a knee dislocation when he was struck by a car. He ended up having significant neurological damage (nerve damage) at the back and the side […]
