We were delighted to kick off our new educational series – ‘ROCKstar – Joint Preservation Skills Lab’ last week. The course was held at the Vesalius Laboratory, Bristol University. With thanks to our expert in AMIC® and Osteotomy Mr. Nick Howells.
Thank you to all the delegates who were in attendance, your contributions to the day made the course a great success!
For a taster of the course, and to see what you can expect from the skills lab, take a look at the montage of the day.
The presentations and practical demonstrations were delivered superbly by Mr. Howells, talking from an experienced surgeon point of view on Cartilage Treatment, AMIC, Alignment, and Activmotion. Jim Carr our Marketing Manager gave an overview of allogenic chondrocyte options with ProChondrix® and Osteochondral allograft.
The skills lab is the ideal opportunity for everyone to gain hands on experience with all components in the ROCKstar kit and our Alignment options. The course flowed through the cartilage algorithm then onto Osteomtomy in the afternoon.
