Hyderabad, 10 March 2023: The Telangana Orthopaedic Surgeons Association conducted a successful Knee Arthroscopy Cadaveric Workshop at Kamineni Hospitals, L.B. Nagar, Hyderabad, on 9 March 2023. The workshop provided an exceptional learning opportunity for attendees from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh to enhance their skills and knowledge of the latest surgical techniques in knee arthroscopy.
The workshop was conducted by experienced orthopedic surgeons. It mainly focused on practical learning using advanced equipment and cadaveric specimens. There were lectures on a range of topics, such as anatomic anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, posterolateral corner reconstruction, meniscal injuries, graft harvesting technique, cartilage injuries of the knee, multi-ligament reconstruction of the knee, and Graft Selection for Knee Ligament Surgeries.
In the second half of the workshop, the attendees were given the opportunity to practice and refine their skills on cadaveric specimens under the guidance of expert instructors. The workshop aimed at creating awareness of keyhole surgeries which can result in less scarring and shorter recovery time, compared to traditional open surgery. Additionally, keyhole surgery can be performed on an outpatient basis, meaning patients can return home on the same day as the surgery.

The cadaveric specimens provided an excellent opportunity for attendees to learn and practice these techniques under expert guidance.”
