The afternoon will consist of a round robin of four 30-minute practical sessions under Consultant supervision where you will:

  • fix an ankle fracture
  • use bone cement and understand why and how we use it
  • apply an external fixator to saw bone models that would be used in emergency situations
  • use different plates and screws to fix long bone fractures and understand why we use different types of implants depending on the fracture.

Meet a Consultant
Have a one-to-one chat with an orthopaedic surgeon where you will have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about the orthopaedic specialty. To register for a face-to-face appointment, please email the BOA events team.
