POSTGRADUATE TRAINING

OVERSEAS FELLOWSHIPS

CHRONIC OSTEOMYELITIS & INFECTED JOINT REVISION

Dr E.E.G.Lautenbach, Johannesburg, South Africa (March / April 1999)

Dr Charles Lautenbach has an unrivalled international experience in the field of chronic osteomyelitis and revision of infected joint replacement. During his career he has managed over 7,000 infected cases, successfully using a suction-irrigation system for antibiotic delivery and lavage. This fellowship allowed extensive exposure to a variety of chronically infected lower limb, upper limb and spinal cases. The aetiology of his patients ranged from post-arthroplasty and trauma, to lower limb infections in diabetics and spina bifida. My time in South Africa allowed me to consolidate the training in chronic osteomyelitis and problem fractures which I had already gained working with Prof. Richardson in Oswestry and Mr Peter Thomas in Stoke-on-Trent. Dr Lautenbach's "hands on" approach to teaching has gave me a unique operative experience which has proved invaluable in establishing a Regional Problem Fracture Service in South Wales

KNEE SURGERY

Dr M.J.Cross, Sydney, Australia (July 1999-June 2000)

Dr Cross is regarded as the foremost knee surgeon in Australia and has a thoroughly justified international reputation. His philosophy of knee surgery from "womb to tomb" makes his fellowship a diverse and rewarding surgical experience. Dr Cross' main interests are in primary and revision knee replacement, patello-femoral disease and cruciate reconstruction. In addition to the extensive operative training, the fellowship also had a large emphasis on research. The fundamental principles of knee surgery I learnt from Dr Cross have formed the basis of my tertiary knee service at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff.
