Hertfordshire's 6th Orthopaedic Master Class will be taking place at Pendley Manor Hotel, Cow Lane, Tring, Hertfordshire, HP23 5QY on Saturday 14th September 2019. This interesting, exciting and innovative programme offers 8 hours' CPD with all refreshments, buffet lunch and speakers' slides and presentations included.

The Stiff and Painful Shoulder by Mr Tony Corner, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
Stiff and painful shoulders are a common and a very disabling condition with significant impact on patients’ quality of life. This talk is therefore aimed at helping the therapist to understand how to obtain a correct diagnosis for the stiff and painful shoulder.

Mr Corner will cover the main topics of frozen shoulder and shoulder arthritis including the latest developments, evidence and treatment techniques available for patients suffering from stiffness and pain.

The aim of this talk is to provide the audience with an understanding of these shoulder conditions, so that they are able to offer patients a treatment pathway that would lead to the quickest recovery.
This talk will cover:

  • Aetiology & pathology
  • Clinical features: history & examination
  • Treatment options
Leg Pain: The Differential Diagnosis by Mr James Langdon, Consultant Spinal Surgeon
Leg pain can be both spinal and non-spinal in origin. In this talk, Mr Langdon will outline the common causes of leg pain – both referred pain from spinal pathologies and also pain from a number of non-spinal conditions. He will discuss the presentations of spinal pathologies including disc prolapses, stenosis and spondylolisthesis, and will leave you better able to distinguish between the spinal and non-spinal causes of leg pain. Attendees will leave this talk with a greater understanding of these conditions, with increased confidence of the correct examination and diagnoses of these conditions.

The Management of the Painful Wrist by Mr Jeremy Read, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon  
An acutely injured wrist normally settles fairly promptly, and patients recognise this. Injuries either feel more serious from day one, and patients present to an Emergency Department, or they feel that it should settle, but it doesn’t. Mr Jeremy Read, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, has therefore designed this talk to offer his advice on how to handle patients coming into your clinic complaining of ongoing wrist pain.

The differential diagnosis for wrist conditions is wide, ranging from minor extrinsic ligament injury, through to more serious intrinsic ligament injury (scapholunate tears) and fractures (scaphoid) through to a tendinopathy which doesn’t settle. The safe management of these scenarios, will be discussed right up to the point where all investigations and even wrist arthroscopy are normal.

Mr Read will cover:
  • History – relevant features
  • Examination tips
  • Diagnosis and treatment

Optimising the Outcome of Hip & Knee Replacements by Mr Tim Waters, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon 
At present in the UK, 190 000 total hip and knee replacements are performed per year, meaning many will be seen by the allied health professional post-operatively. This talk will therefore involve an in-depth discussion about rehabilitation management for patients with hip and knee replacements.

Mr Waters will demonstrate key points to look out for while examining the hip and knee, particularly what to look out for with problematic joint replacements.
This talk will include: lack of prehab; poor surgical techniques; missed red flags; and the wrong rehab.
Degenerative Hips: Top tips for Management by Mr Paul Whittingham-Jones, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon  
Mr Whittingham-Jones will cover the hip as seen in the older patient, including diagnosis of degenerative conditions. He will also share his hints and tips on ensuring a thorough diagnosis.
This talk will include:
  • What are the pathologies of degenerative hip disorders?
  • Examining the hip: top tips
  • Degenerative conditions and diagnosis
  • Management options and onward referral
Attendees will leave this course confident in how to assess degenerative hip disorders, as well as how to manage these conditions.

Knee Problems in Young Adults and the Arthritic Knee by Mr Subhajit Ghosh, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
This talk will cover all you knee’d to know about knees in a range of patients, from young athletes to the older population.

Firstly, we will cover the knee conditions your younger patients are more likely to complain about: sporting injuries. Mr Ghosh sees a wide range of sporting injuries in his practice and so will cover a range of knee injuries. We shall discuss ACL injuries and meniscus tears among other conditions as well as share tips on diagnosis and treatment pathways.

Secondly, we will cover all aspects of the older, arthritic knee and its management options. We will discuss examination and diagnosis as well as how to manage these patients.
