About


Keele Surgical Society is pleased to host the Keele National Orthoplastics Workshop 2022. The event will provide delegates with the opportunity to gain hands-on consultant-led teaching in the fields of Orthopaedic and Plastic Surgery.

Multi-speciality collaboration is vital in providing the best medical care in today’s health system. Orthopaedic and Plastic Surgery commonly work hand-in-hand to optimise complex cases involving major trauma, open fractures and are both allied in hand surgery.

These specialties are often overlooked and undertaught in the medical school curriculum, despite being large fields of medicine that impact patients in all age ranges. As such, the event will comprise of a series of talks given by specialists in the fields.

Additionally, delegates will have the opportunity to participate in five workshops covering basic skills in Orthopaedics and Plastics.

Funds raised from ticket sales will be donated to BFIRST.
