  • Management of deformities, soft tissue balancing, choice of implants.
  • Current view on controversies in primary knee replacements.

  • This course has a good future ahead. I will definitely recommend it to my friends in our deanery.
  • Excellent course, good ratio of faculty to attendees
  • Excellent course. Would highly recommend to others.
  • Excellent course because mentors had time to answer questions individually. May I suggest in future to include a talk focusing on terminology e.g. fixed bearing/mobility condylon/modular etc. Overall excellent course.
