Mr W A Hadden, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, and Dr Agarwal’s project Supervisor stated: “I was very pleased that Dr Agarwal has had the opportunity to present his work at the recent symposium in Glasgow. Despite some initial administrative setbacks he has applied himself assiduously to the project and has achieved some novel findings. He is a conscientious and determined person that fully deserves his success”.

The International Orthopaedic & Trauma symposium has been designed to develop enhanced knowledge and to provide you with the latest thinking and advances in current practice to optimise surgical outcomes. There will be a variety of topics presented at the Symposium including the management of soft tissue knee injuries, paediatric foot disorders, hand and wrist injury, outcomes of hip fractures, hip AVN, and the management of the multiple injured patient amongst others, provided by an exceptional and internationally acclaimed Faculty.

Professor Rami Abboud, MCh (Orth) Course Director and Head of Postgraduate Division at the School of Medicine added: “It is always with a sense of pride when we see existing students, as well as MCh (Orth) graduates, presenting their research at international conferences. Dr Agarwal has put in a tremendous amount of work and dedication into all aspects of his course this year and is worthy of presenting his work in a poster that he himself designed here at the TORT Centre”.
