Short term observership (two weeks) is available for those who want to get an introduction to arthroscopy and as a refresher for those who already do arthroscopy.
Our centre carries out around 1000 knee and shoulder surgeries per year. Services provided in the centre includes arthroscopy, joint replacement, advanced shoulder surgery, paediatric orthopaedics, physiotherapy, mini gym and Dr.S.G Krishnan arthroscopy learning centre. The learning centre is equipped with a library, saw bone models (courtesy karl storz), library and video resource centre.
Our Present Arrangement
Every Tuesday 7.30am we have classes for the fellows, physiotherapist and observers. Our centre is associated with G9MD. Every Tuesday 5pm various topics on shoulder will be discussed through video conferencing.
We are planning for tie-up with other countries for exchange of ideas and learning and teaching. We welcome young surgeons from other countries like African countries to come and spend 3 months with us as fellows. And these young doctors will have adequate exposure to various orthopaedic surgeries especially arthroscopy and sports medicine. They also will have total exposure for joint replacement surgery.
