Upper limb lectures at UDOTS

Mr David Stanley, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, gave a series of lectures to MCh (Orth) students studying at the University Department of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery (UDOTS).

He shared his vast experience of upper limb surgery by giving talks on ‘Fractures of the distal humerus: plating techniques’, ‘Fractures of the distal humerus: the place of elbow arthroplasty’, and ‘Instability of the elbow and its management’.

Mr Stanley’s clinical practice is exclusively devoted to shoulder and elbow surgery. He has an NHS base at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals where he is the Senior Shoulder and Elbow Surgeon. He treats most shoulder conditions and all elbow disorders. He has a particular interest in complex elbow problems receiving referrals from all over the UK. He has more than 50 peer-reviewed publications and his results of treatment are consistent with the best published results from around the world.

In addition to his commitment to provide the highest quality of patient care, he is also passionate about training future Orthopaedic Surgeons, such as our MCh (Orth) students. He has edited and written two textbooks on the elbow and is currently Chairman of the Intercollegiate Examination Board in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery which has responsibility for examining Orthopaedic Surgeons in training prior to them becoming consultants.

Mr Arpit Jariwala, Director of UDOTS, stated:

“I’d like to personally thank Mr Stanley for travelling to Dundee to share his wealth of knowledge of upper limb surgery with our MCh (Orth) students. He is well known for his commitment to teach the next generation of orthopaedic surgeons and we are fortunate that he makes time in his busy schedule to visit Dundee each year. We continually strive to attract the best teaching faculty to Dundee which makes this a stand-out course in the world of orthopaedics and helps to further our students’ understanding of complex surgeries and techniques.”
