Shoulder surgery workshop


Organised by Ortho One, a Coimbatore-based orthopedic specialty care centre, the two-day course will include shoulder replacement, articular surface replacement, arthroscopy and shoulder rehabilitation workshop.

Founder and chairman of Ortho One, Dr David Rajan said, "Shoulder injuries especially cuff injuries are common among athletes in various sports like cricket, tennis, volleyball, basketball, golf, etc. About a decade back, joint surgeries usually meant knees. Now, shoulder surgery is gaining prominence." Still the number of shoulder surgeons is very less as compared to western countries like US, where each city has at least two surgeons specialising in shoulder injuries, he added.
