Prince of Wales Private Hospital invites General Practitioners to attend this live, online and interactive meeting presented by Dr Doron Sher, Dr Michael Solomon, Dr. Arnold Suzuki and facilitated by Orthopaedics NUM Jeremy Evangelatos.

In this meeting, we will discuss GP's management of common shoulder, knee and paediatric orthopaedic problems. Looking at different investigations required for a diagnosis of each of the problems and to provide GP's with a general overview of how they will treat and manage patients. We aim to assist GP's in the diagnosis and management pathways for common orthopaedic presentations and provide pathways for referral of problems.
1. Manage very common rotator cuff tears understanding conservative versus operative management, the success of surgery and how often replacement is required for chronic cuff tears.

3. Assess and manage limb alignment in paediatric patients, understanding what’s normal and variance with an overview of common paediatric orthopaedic problems.
