Upper Limb Dry-bone Workshops

Master of Orthopaedic Surgery (MCh Orth) students today (18 November 2016) attended and participated in two practical Dry-bone workshops; one on the Coonrad-Morrey Shoulder System and the other on the Bigliani Elbow System. These workshops were delivered by Mr Carlos Wigderowitz, Consultant Upper Limb Orthopaedic Surgeon. Mr Wigderowitz runs and delivers this full-day workshop annually at the Cuschieri Skills Centre in conjunction with Zimmer Biomet. Mr Wigderowitz was supported by John Daly from JRI Orthopaedics and Amanda McAuley from Zimmer-Biomet.

These workshops once again highlight the diverse range of learning opportunities available to students studying on the MCh (Orth) Dundee course at the University of Dundee, complementing the unique workshop delivered on Thiel cadavers. Such dry-bone workshops expertly run in conjunction with lectures, hands-on cadaveric surgery workshops, research skills and clinical attachment for the course duration only go to emphasise that studying the MCh (Orth) in Dundee is a unique opportunity for all orthopaedic surgeons.

The MCh candidates benefit greatly from hands-on experience using the latest advances in technology that is afforded to us by the various industries that we collaborate with”, said Professor Rami Abboud. “We are indebted to them for their yearly generosity in donating their equipment and expertise for these highly informative sessions”.
