Workshop on shoulder surgery

By Our Staff Reporter

CHENNAI, FEB. 29. The Apollo Hospitals on Sunday organised its first annual shoulder surgery course here to inform surgeons about developments made in shoulder surgery, a sub-specialty of orthopaedics. Two surgeries were performed on Wednesday at the Teynampet branch of the hospital.

"Until a decade ago, shoulder problems were not treated because of lack of expertise," said Peter Campbell, shoulder surgeon from Australia, who performed the operations. Sportspersons are not the only ones who suffer, but a number of shoulder injuries occur to people everyday and remain untreated, he said.

Vijay C. Bose, consultant orthopaedic surgeon, Apollo Hospitals, said an engineer who played `shuttle badminton' daily could not use his arm after an injury. He had been operated upon and would now be able to lift his arm.

The course, which included a live surgery workshop, was aimed at helping surgeons share information and treatments available for shoulder problems.
