Hand and Wrist Conditions at The Primary Care: What Not to Miss – Miss Sonja Cerovac, Consultant Plastic Surgeon

In this session, Miss Sonja Cerovac will be giving you a set of practical tips on accurate diagnosis and safe management of common hand and wrist conditions to help your patients as quickly as possible. Using illustrations and case studies of hand and wrist pathophysiology to facilitate learning, we will be emphasising conditions which should be recognised and treated early. This will be essential in avoiding poor outcomes, complicated, less predictable treatments and possible legal challenges. Miss Cerovac will also be commenting on the efficacy of various treatment options which should be explained to patients as part of informed consent.


Neck Pain and Cervical Radiculopathy – Mr Amarjit Anand, Consultant Orthopaedic Spinal Surgeon

Degenerative neck conditions can be extremely painful and debilitating for the patient. Enhance your knowledge with Mr Amarjit Anand on how to identify conditions, such as cervical arthritis, radiculopathy, disc herniations and instability. We will be examining investigations, including MRI and SPECT scans and examination techniques, before delving into a discussion on the most advanced treatments in the field. Management options will range from physiotherapy, medications, to various cervical injection techniques, radiofrequency denervation, anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF), total disc replacements (TDR), posterior foraminotomy, laminectomy and minimally invasive (MIS) posterior cervical fusion. 


A Venn Diagram of Common Shoulder Conditions - Mr Ali Shafighian, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon

Mr Ali Shafighian will be delving into three common shoulder conditions: the frozen shoulder (adhesive capsulitis), rotator cuff tears, and impingement. Learn about coexisting shoulder pathologies which can make diagnosis for frozen shoulder more difficult, and advances in non-surgical treatment, as well as injection which can halt the condition. We will be exploring when obvious traumatic rotator cuff tears in younger patients with a clear history need to be spotted and repaired, as there is a small window of opportunity to do this. Other cases often may have a mixed picture with chronic elements, so indications for surgery become less clear, and we will consider the factors in the decision to repair. Lastly, we will look at impingement, which can also be in association with varying degrees of rotator cuff tearing. Non-surgical treatments and injections as a first line of treatment will be discussed, followed by arthroscopic decompression as a last resort. Mr Shafighian will be demonstrating that there should not be an “either/or” diagnostic mentality and that they should be depicted as a Venn Diagram with all three conditions overlapping.


Learning outcomes:

  • Take practical tips and knowledge back to your practice on common hand and wrist conditions which should be identified and treated early on, including legal ramifications and informed consent
  • Understand degenerative cervical spine conditions, such as cervical arthritis, radiculopathy, disc herniations and instability, and how to recognise and manage them
  • Identify the key components of each common shoulder condition but understand how they can overlap and learn about the advances in non-surgical and surgical treatments
