Precise Planned Performance

Meeting Update

Due to the current situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the uncertainty over the next few months, the convenors of Northern Osteotomy Masterclass have made the difficult decision to postpone the meeting (scheduled for the 13th & 14th July).

For those who have already registered, the fee will be refunded onto your card within 5 working days. We would advise you to cancel any accommodation you may have booked as soon as possible.

We will be running the meeting in the future, as soon as we have confirmed dates, we will of course let you know.

We deeply regret any inconvenience caused by the cancellation and we share your disappointment, but we believe this is the most responsible course of action to protect the health and well-being of attendees and the patients they serve, presenters, exhibitors, staff, vendors and all those engaged in the conference

Practical cadaveric workshops

Practical cadaveric workshops will take place on each day of the course at the Newcastle Surgical Training Centre. The subject matter will be high tibial osteotomy on Monday and distal femoral osteotomy on Tuesday.

Delegates will watch a Saw Bone demonstration from our expert international faculty, before moving into the cadaveric WetLab. Working in pairs, each surgeon will have an opportunity to perform one procedure and assist in the other. The practicals will be directed from a demonstration table, with images transmitted onto screens around the lab. The cadaveric specimens will realistically simulate surgery with a dedicated scrub nurse to facilitate instrument flow and a supervising faculty member split between two workstations to explain the procedures. The session will end with a roaming camera demonstrating the different devices used around the lab.


Planning workshops for osteotomy surgery

Delegates will attend classroom workshops, and annotate paper x-rays with appropriate stationery, focussed on improving understanding of deformity analysis and subsequent osteotomy planning, prior to a demonstration of computer based planning simulations.

Workshop discussion groups

These small group seminars have are designed to promote discussion and give delegates an opportunity to ask questions from the international expert faculty. They’ve been a popular component of the course in the past so remain an essential part of the program. A key element here will be clinical case discussion. Delegates are encouraged to bring their own cases to the meeting for discussion with faculty and other delegates.

The lecture content has been reduced to make more time for the lab based practicals and workshops. However we’ve kept the essential elements to understand the principles of knee osteotomy.


Social opportunity

Discussion and debate is a key part of any meeting, that’s why there will be an opportunity for delegates and faculty to network over an informal dinner on Monday evening.
